For 3 mornings in January 19-21 from 10am – 1pm she is going to be in the museum soaking up the atmosphere, talking to the visitors and writing.
We’ll keep her in tea and cakes, will you keep her in conversation and inspiration? If you’ve ever wanted to be an author, meet an author, see an author in her natural habitat or just learn more about writing and publishing then this is a great opportunity.
Janet is open and generous, funny and kind. And she looooves chatting to people!Janet is going to create a new, responsive work during her residency. It could be a short story, a flash fiction, a blog, a magazine article … the possibilities are endless.
Janet says that she already feels a story about Rodger brewing. We can’t wait to read what she comes up with.
Janet’s manuscript for The Killing of Louisa won the Emerging Queensland Writer category in the 2017 Queensland Literary Awards and was then published by University of Queensland Press.
She has a Doctor of Creative Arts from the University of the Sunshine Coast. She is a failed foster dog parent… she kept the dog… twice.
This is a free experience with entry to Gympie Bone Museum.
