I write books for children and young adults. Sometimes I write short stories for grown-ups.
The world of publishing can be a cold place, but it’s a little bit warmer with an agent by your side. In this short course, agent and writer extraordinaire Danielle Binks shines a light on the writer-agent relationship.
You will learn:
- How to approach an agent
- The art of pitching
- The role of an agent
- The agent-writer relationship
*All courses start at 8pm AEST
Based on the Stella Prize-winning book, The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka is an upcoming drama series exploring the stories of bold women adventurers who flocked to the Australian goldfields in the 1850s, and their little-acknowledged role in the Eureka Stockade. Recently, award-winning Hollywood writer Anne Kenney, executive producer and scriptwriter for the fan-favourite Outlander has been secured to write the pilot script. The series is being produced by Ruby Entertainment, creators of the Logie winning The Secret River.
Join historian Dr Clare Wright and screenwriter Anne Kenney in conversation with writer and critic Danielle Binks as they discuss all things Outlander and Forgotten Rebels, including their process for adapting non-fiction narratives for television, the importance of the female gaze, constructing powerful female historical representations and navigating an international co-production.
Danielle Binks, Author and Editor, will be in the Loreto Mandeville library on Friday 24 August, for a chat about books and her experiences editing Begin, End, Begin, A Love Oz YA Anthology.
