Budding writers congregate at Writers' Festival
As a writer, I believe it is extremely important to use the correct English in your work, especially if you are sending to a publisher. How many novels or non-fiction work have you read that is not correct in spelling and punctuation? Yet these days, English seems to be a language that is not as important as it used to be. We are finding phonetic spelling is accepted. I cringe when I hear some of it said!

In Melbourne from 19th to 29th June 2018, the Emerging Writers' Festival (EWF) is being held at the State Library Victoria. Over the eleven days of the festival, approximately 80 events will occur featuring more than 300 emerging and established writers. Some of the events being held are free and some will require an entrance fee.

A two-day conference will be held over the weekend of 23rd and 24th June. The programme this year has been extended to include more than 70 artists where discussions, panels, workshops and networking will create new opportunities for all who attend. The programme and timetable for this event will enable you to decide if you wish to purchase a conference pass for the whole weekend or either of the days. You can also select individual sessions to purchase. Once you have purchased your pass, a unique serial number will be shown on your receipt. This receipt will be emailed to you. All tickets must be redeemed to gain entry and passes are not transferable.
