Award-winning science fiction author, Marianne de Pierres, will conduct a comprehensive workshop on writing speculative fiction.

Women of Action: the new wave of crime and thriller fiction – Friday 5 August 6-7pm, Brisbane Square Library
Join authors Marianne Delacourt and L.A. Larkin in conversation with Amanda Bacchi about creating dynamic female central characters in crime and thriller fiction. In a genre that often depicts women as victims or side-kicks, these authors are turning the tables. How do their lead characters’ lives reflect those of the authors? This event is ideal for crime fiction and thriller lovers, aspiring writers, and anyone who will enjoy an evening with two highly entertaining authors.
