Romancing the Stars was a fabulous evening full of writing stars, with the added romance of a beautiful sunset at Bulimba on Thursday. It was wonderful to see so many authors and illustrators gathered together, along with such enthusiastic readers. Head over to the Events page, and look under Photos to see Pam’s photos of the event. Here’s one to get you started:
Book Links, together with CBC Qld Branch, and Moreton Bay Region Libraries, are proud to present “What is a literary agent, and do I need one?”
You’ve read the acknowledgment pages and heard all the big authors thank their agents and say how vital their agent is to their success, but what does an agent actually do? And what could an agent do for you? Experienced Agent to children’s and adult authors, Margaret Kennedy, will discuss her work and uncover the secret to finding an agent of your very own.
The AGM will be held this Saturday the 28th September, at the Queensland Writers’ Centre, at 10.30am. The AGM paperwork is attached. Current members are able to vote at the AGM, but all is not lost if your membership has lapsed – the renewal form is included in the attached paperwork.
A planning meeting has been scheduled to follow the AGM, and members are very welcome to stay to help plan for 2014 and beyond.
Sadly we’ve had to cancel the Big Lit Quiz which was to be on Saturday. So if you were planning to come along, please save that enthusiasm for our next event.
Just wanted to remind everyone, especially you teachers, that the deadline for entering your school teams in the Big Lit Quiz is coming closer. This will be a fun-filled event, with the chance for your school to become champions of children’s literature. And all for free! For full details, see Big Lit Quiz Flyer
