Ian Ridgway & Michael Davies

Two local writers will be at Coffs Harbour Library on Thursday, May 28th at 5:30pm to talk about the joys and difficulties of writing, getting published, to present their works and answer any questions you may have.

* Ian Ridgway of Port Macquarie is the author of the acclaimed trilogy, “Red Cedar, Red Gold.” Drawing upon true stories and bushmen's tales, some of his own family history and personal experiences Ian Ridgway has created what he describes as 'fiction based on fact' in this accurate snapshot of an era only a generation passed.'

* Michael Davies has spent most of his life travelling and working around the world, He filled in the hours by writing novels, from Science Fiction to political thrillers and now has seven titles in print.

Spend the evening with Ian & Michael as they discuss so many of the issues that occupy the thoughts of writers today. Issues such as,

* How to get your work published

* Ways to promote your next best seller

* Writers Support Groups – how to make the most of what’s available

* Developing research skills

As local authors, Ian & Michael are keen to take the opportunity to develop the writing culture in the region, and look forward to sharing ideas with other scribes.

RSVP 22nd May for Catering purposes please. For further inquiries please contact Judy.
