The Curtis Coast Literary Carnivale is ‘one of the most successful and well-run festivals in Australia. It doesn’t get better than this,’ Jackie French, Gladstone Observer, 25 July 2012.

I'll be there, along with TRISTAN BANCKS, PETER CARNAVAS, ANNA FIENBERG, NARELLE OLIVER and JAMES ROY.  Together we'll be running over 50 school sessions.
