Ballarat Writers Inc: First Reading night of the year

7 February, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm



The first reading will be Thursday Feb 7, 7.30pm at the new location of the Ballaarat Mechanics Institute library. ($5 entry inc refreshments)

Karen Sparnon will be our guest author, which is a great chance to meet Karen prior to the workshops. Please feel free to bring along your works in progress to share during the open mic session.

About Karen: Karen works as a freelance writer and teacher. She has twenty-five years teaching experience and a PhD in Professional Writing and Editing. Her first novel – Madonna of the Eucalypts – was published by Text Publishing in 2006. Madonna was translated and published overseas, and in 2007 won the Grollo Ruzzene Foundation Prize for Writing about ltalians in Australia. She has recently completed her second novel, which is again set between Italy and Australia, and is at work on her third novel.

Karen has written anecdotal and travel articles for major Australian newspapers, and assessed fiction and non-fiction manuscripts for an assessment agency. Her great passions are all things to do with reading and writing – especially anything that helps us understand the mystery of creativity. She loves ltaly, Renaissance art and her dog, Polly.
