Personal mentoring from Writer-in-Residence Libby Gleeson

30 August 2011

Faculty alumna, renowned children's author Adjunct Honorary Professor Libby Gleeson AM, will be conducting a series of consultations with new writers in the faculty during Semester Two. The consultations will be one-off, one-to-ones with Libby and will be an opportunity to discuss a short piece of fiction, or a short section from a longer work. This is a rare opportunity to receive literary mentoring from an award-winning practitioner and competition will be fierce. This will be the first of six consultations; the remaining dates are September 6, September 13, September 20, October 4 and October 13. High demand is anticipated, so applicants should submit a piece of fiction work of not more than 2000 words to be considered for mentoring. Some of the finished work may be published on the faculty's website in a showcase of Libby's time as writer-in-residence. This is a one-off opportunity to develop fiction writing. Registrations of interest and submissions should be emailed to Helen Loughlin, including name, telephone number and relationship to the faculty.
