Event description

Description

On the first Friday night of each month, Brunswick Bound Upstairs hosts a night of local author readings.

It's your chance to discover a new author and for authors to discover new audiences.

In April, the event will feature readings from YA literature by Matt Davies (This Thing of Darkness) , Michael Earp ("Meet and Greet" from Underdog: #LoveOZYA Short Stories) and Jes Layton ("Chemical Expression" from Underdog: #LoveOZYA Short Stories)

Each author will read from their work and there will be a short Q&A afterwards.

Light refreshments will be served at the event.

He has ghostwritten seven nonfiction titles, written feature articles for a number of Australian magazines, published more than 100 articles online for the health sector, and written scripts for television commercials and documentaries.
