My contribution to Varuna’s writer-a-day project is now up on the Varuna blog. It’s an extract from my novel-in-progress Not Like Sensation (working title). You can listen to me reading it (only 2.5 mins) or just read the text, here.
I was at Varuna Writers House in 2008, as a recipient of Peter Bishop’s Pathways to Publication Masterclass (a program that no longer exists, I believe) for a previous manuscript. It’s such a wonderful place, in the Blue Mountains. If you’re a writer, you should apply for one of their programs. You can also pay to stay there if you just need a writing getaway.
My friend and colleague Mark Welker made a cool little video at Varuna, too, which brings back many memories.
When there are enough writer-a-day extracts, Varuna will be turning the project into an app.
