A Winning Submission with Marele Day


You have been working away at your brilliant manuscript and now feel it is ready to share with the world. This half-day workshop will give you strategies for writing a distinctive submission that will get your work noticed by agents, publishers, competition judges, and residencies such as Varuna and Byron Writers Festival residential mentorship.

Marele Day's four-book Claudia Valentine series won her a Ned Kelly Lifetime Achievement Award for crime writing.  Her bestselling literary novel, Lambs of God, was published to international acclaim and is now a major TV miniseries.  Marele is a highly experienced teacher and mentor, and had served as judge for literary competitions including the Vogel Awards and NSW Premier’s Literary Awards.
