UTS Graduation to Publication night

I had a wonderful time last week at the Graduation to Publication night at UTS. I was invited to be on the panel with novelist David Dyer, short story writer and non-fiction author Virginia Peters and Bronwyn Mehan, a publisher, and the mediator for the evening. Gabrielle Carey hosted the event, and it was wonderful to catch up with her and Debra Adelaide (I signed Debra's copy of In at the Deep End which was a career highlight!). I was lucky enough to be in both Gabrielle and Debra's classes when I did the Masters of Creative Writing at UTS, and learnt a great deal from them.

Was also great to catch up with a number of my fellow students who came along for the night, and hear all their news.
