Larkin, Nicola Moriarty, Belinda Castles, Chris Hammer, Lauren Chater, Stella Tarakson, Sara Mansour and the multi-talented Catherine Jinks. We also have editor Linda Funnel speaking on ‘polishing your manuscript.’ There will be a local author panel featuring Dianne Todaro-Wells, Courtney Peppernell and Antoinette Conolly. The popular editor’s panel presents: James Read and Lex Hirst our Adult Editors and Zoe Walton, Jessica Owen and Clare Hallifax our children’s editors. The awards for our Picture Book Writing Competition will also be presented.
