Writers’ masterclass starts with the fine art of reading
AUTHOR Angela Meyer grew up in Coffs Harbour before spreading her wings in the literary world.
Early on she established one of the leading literary blogs in the country before reviewing for The Australian and the Sydney Morning Herald.
Angela has interviewed authors at writers' festivals around the world.
Her fiction has been published widely, and in 2014 her collection of flash fiction, Captives, was published by Inkerman and Blunt. She now lives in Melbourne.
Angela also served as the editor of an anthology of spooky Australian stories, The Great Unknown (Spineless Wonders).
She has also written reviews, poetry, flash fiction, blogs and essays.
Returning to the new Coffs Harbour Writers' Centre, Angela will offer a masterclass - sharing some of what she has learnt about the importance of becoming a better reader, in order to grow as a writer.
Uncover the nuts and bolts of your own favourite books, and other influential works of literature, through reviews, discussion and creative responses.
Hear what other writers have to say about their process and discover that reading both deeply and widely will help you to find your true "voice".
The new writers' centre was launched last month at the Bayldon Community Centre at Toormina where eminent author Robert Drewe talked about his work with Irina Dunn.
The centre intends to create a program of workshops, readings, book launches and writers-in-residence that will excite everyone involved in reading or writing on the Coffs Coast.
