Annmarie Reid (fellow Fiona McIntosh Mini-Masterclass attendee) and I had a fabulous time at the Historical Novel Society of Australia Conference at Swinburne Uni, Melbourne, back in September. It was an informative and frankly, amazing weekend filled with some incredible guests and lots of familiar Romance Writers of Australia (& famous) faces. The next conference will be in Adelaide in two years. Well worth it, even if history isn’t your thing … it just might be after such an insight into the human condition. This is why we write after all.
Seriously, some of the presenters were tearing up with their passion in tracing the lives of people of the past. Authors, screenwriters, scholars, publishers – everyone was there sharing that.
