The Get Fresh Dream Team are excited to bring you an innovative program of fresh ideas and topics at the 24th Annual RWA Conference in 2015.
The Romance Writers of Australia annual conference provides unique networking opportunities for writers, editors, agents and other publishing industry professionals with a keen focus on romance publishing. The program features a wide range of workshops designed for writers at every stage of their career and publishing journeys.
Get Fresh in 15 will be an innovative, relevant, contemporary conference that reflects the sophistication and diversity of Romance Writers of Australia as an organisation and builds on Melbourne’s strong literary culture and communities. The focus of the conference is on quality: quality venue, innovative content, high calibre speakers and diverse topics targeted to aspiring, emerging and established writers.
RWA Members and others are invited to contribute their expertise and experience to this exciting event. Submissions are now open for presentations or panels to be delivered at Get Fresh in 15 Melbourne, 22 – 23 August 2015.
We are seeking experienced local and international talent to present novel and up-to-date sessions on craft excellence, the publishing industry, career management, marketing and promotion, self publishing, the writer’s life, business planning and more. In addition to these broad topics, we welcome submissions for panel sessions or presentations exploring popular romance sub-genres including gay/lesbian romance, sci-fi/paranormal/fantasy, young adult, and crime/suspense/mystery. Sessions on business planning and management, particularly for authors operating in a global business context, are also welcome.
Please target your proposal to a suitable audience – aspiring, emerging or established writers. Proposals nominated as ‘suitable for all’ will be considered, however targeted presentations are preferred.
