Event description

Description

The inaugural West Coast Fiction Festival takes place on Saturday 3 November 2018 at Rendezvous Hotel, Scarborough. This amazing event will be a fantastic opportunity for fiction fans to meet a panoply of local and interstate authors in one place, and it is the first event of its kind in WA.

In the lead up to this huge event, Stirling Libraries – Scarborough will be hosting a special author panel event a month before the festival. Meet some of Perth’s most outstanding rural romance authors including:

  • Sasha Wasley

  • Rachael Johns

  • Anthea Hodgson

  • Jennie Jones and

  • Tess Woods

The panel will discuss the writing process, the importance of women’s voices in Australian literature, and the popularity of the rural romance genre, as well as some issues that are particularly close to their hearts.

Profits from this event will go to Share the Dignity, who work to improve the living conditions of homeless women in Perth. There will be collection boxes available for those who would like to donate sanitary items to Share the Dignity. Dymocks Books will also be on hand to sell books at this event.
