There are so many interesting workshops coming up, as well as a signing on the Saturday that readers and the general public can attend, which is being held by the Australian Romance Readers Association at the conference. The Friday workshops are very interesting. There are two separate events, and honestly, I’d like to clone myself because both look amazing.But I’m interested, how many of the authors who read this blog attend conferences and large signings, and how many readers would be interested in attending something like one of the Friday workshops, the Elizabeth Joley Conference, which is being hosted by Curtin University, and will consist of three streams of 8-9 papers presented on various aspects of the romance novel, including reader experiences, after a keynote address by Professor Imelda Whelehan on the relationship between romance writing and feminism?
And what about the signing? As a reader, do you enjoy attending signings? Things you love about them, things you don’t like so much?
If you’re at all interested in the Fremantle conference, you can find all the details here (and there is an early bird rate that ends at the end of April, so hurry if you are interested!).
