Those of you who have been following me for some time may remember that I attended the Festival of Golden Words, held in Beaconsfield, Tasmania, in 2014 (for those who don’t, I blogged about it here). I had such a fantastic time, and was so looking forward to returning this year, only to find it didn’t happen. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement, especially as only a few months ago the website showed no signs of being updated since last years festival.
But there is good news! The Festival of Golden words will be on again – but it’s had a name change – The Tamar Valley Writers Festival. It has a huge line up of writers already, with more yet to be added (so I understand), and if it is anything like the first event it is certainly not to be missed!
So, having a bit more of a heads up about this one I’m already putting away my pocket money for workshops and signed books, and I’ll be heading back to the program page of the website in September so I can start planning my weekend!
(Also in September there is the Tasmanian Writers and Readers Festival, held in Hobart on the 11th, 12th, and 13th of the month. I have hopes of attending that too – just got to find some babysitters… 😉
