Last night was the opening night event for the Bendigo Writers Festival, held at Bendigo’s incredible Ulumbarra theatre.
Guests were Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project, Ita Buttrose, much loved publishing and media icon, Benjamin Law, author and creator of The Family Law, seen on SBS television and David Astile, known for his crosswords and author of many books about riddles and words. Convenor of the evening was leadership expert, Kris Kotur.
I enjoyed hearing about what these successful authors did to unlock their creativity and how they coped with those moments when deadlines loomed but creativity just wasn’t there.
This was a fabulous night, that made me feel excited about the weekend to come.
