You'll remember earlier this year how we followed the events of the Stella Prize for Australian women writers. Well I'm very excited to announce that this year's winner, Carrie Tiffany (see picture), is coming to my university to give a very special guest lecture.
Carrie is the multiple award-winning author of two novels, Everyman's Rules for Scientific Living, and Mateship with Birds. She is visiting the Queensland University of Technology on the 13th of May (Monday week) to talk about her life, her inspiration for Mateship with Birds, and her writing process.
As an avid reader and writer, this is unbelievably exciting! Needless to say that I raced to reserve a seat in the lecture. For me, this feels a lot like meeting a celebrity. You should definitely have a read about Carrie Tiffany and her Stella Prize winning novel, here at the Stella Prize website.
I'll let you know how it went!
