The Faber Academy started in Paris, at the famed Shakespeare & Co bookshop. It's since spread all over the world - mixing wonderful writers and publishers with people who want to learn how to be wonderful writers and publishers. Here in Australia, Faber Academy is coordinated by Allen & Unwin, and later this month I'll be speaking at Get Published As A Writer For Children, run by the wonderful Rosalind Price, and also guest-starring Elizabeth Honey and Erica Wagner. It looks like an amazing program - I want to stay for the whole day!
There's also lots of awesome other courses coming up, with literary luminaries like Sophie Cunningham, Shane Maloney, Jenny Darling, Markus Zusak, Margo Lanagan and Carrie Tiffany.
