Ask … About Writing for Anthologies

Ask … About Writing for Anthologies

Anthologies can be a wonderful way of networking, increasing your literary footprint, contributing to causes you believe in, sharing your experiences, or even starting a writing career. But anthologies have a specific and unique structure, pitching, and publication process that can be opaque from the outside.

Clunes Booktown Festival – ‘Reading to Escape, or Face, Reality’

Are we Reading to Escape, or Face, Reality?

Never has there been a greater range of books written for adolescent readers. There are books that invite them into worlds that teem with the extraordinary, the fantastical, or pulse with gritty realism. How do authors make decisions about the worlds that will best tell their story? Authors, Gabrielle Wang, Danielle Binks, Nicole Hayes and Jack Henseleit share their strategies to engage younger readers with Amanda McGraw-Pleban.
