Festivals Galore!

I haven’t said much on the blog recently, because I’ve been busy! (Probably a little too busy for my own sanity). I’ve started a new job AND have been working on Issue 2, which is nearly on its way out into the big, bad world. I’m also going to be appearing at a whole bunch of festivals in the near future, thanks to the wonderful machine that is Pencilled In. If you’re interested at all, here’s what I’ll be doing (and please feel free to come and say hi!):

Brisbane Writers Festival (Brisbane)
Pencilled In

Discover perspectives from Asian Australians and the use of writing to explore the boundaries of dominant Australian identity.
