Digital Drive @ MWF
Melbourne Writers Festival delivered again this year. Saturday's Digital Drive at the Wheeler Centre proved to be an engaging and informative set of conversational presentations from three different sets of speakers. The topics varied from profiles and publishing to some hairy journalistic exploits. It was a pleasure and a privilege to be in the audience before the various speakers. I was most impressed with Darrell Pitt of The Steampunk Detective fame. He spoke humbly and eloquently of his publishing journey, offering some valuable insights to the likes of the 'wannabee published authors' in the audience.
Of course, one day just isn't enough... I went back for more next day - this time to join the Bohemian Melbourne walking tour hosted by John Arnold and Tony Moore. This was an opportunity to imbibe some of city's historical bohemian culture, exploring haunts frequented by Melbourne's nineteenth century writers and artists. Finishing off with afternoon tea in Fed Square made it the perfect end to a wonderfully enjoyable weekend at MWF.
