As you all probably know, the Perth Writers Festival is next week, running from the 24th of February through to the 26th. There will be stalls, workshops, lectures and panels with guest authors – local, national and international including the fabulous and hilarious Marieke Hardy, Germaine Greer, Thomas Keneally…a whole host of writers gracing our humble town with their presence! The list of authors is truly staggering.
To top it all off, this year Underground will be attending the festival! We’ll have a little table set up with various goodies, an exquisite corpse game (Google it; it’s not as gruesome as it sounds) and copies of our ‘zine available. Stop by and have a chat to us – we’re friendly, and we won’t bite. Promise. Unless you’re into that sort of thing.
Make sure to attend, and not just for us. The arts scene in WA needs your support, and your attendance at this festival (and future events) goes a long way to giving the writing/publishing scene in Perth the attention (and often the funding) that it deserves. More information can be found on the Perth Festival website.
Looking forward to hanging out with you guys in person!
