    Anyone going to Sydney Writers' Festival?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by marcusl, Apr 27, 2010.

    Just curious if anyone is going to this event? Has anyone ever tried to organize a meet up during a festival? I guess it'd be tough, though, since it's so crowded.

    Thanks.

    Sadly no. Maybe next year when im livingi n Sydney. I suppose you're going?

    Do you know where they are holding it this year?

    The NSW writers centre in in Rozelle Sydney, i'm sure there would be quiet a few that go to that which have organised something for it.

    Distance renders it difficult, alas. :)

    Who is Sydney Writers anyway?;)

    "A quick google of Sydney Writers" ???

    That just might be an arrestable offence.

    How do you figure that?

    If you want details on an upcoming event such as the Sydney writers festival in 2010, what are you going to do.

    Google tinned dog food?

    I would, but that might be cause I'm a girl. :D


    It sounds interesting, but there's that distance problem... marcusl, if you go, be sure to tell us all about it! :)

    No. That, frankly, would just be silly.

    I'm surprised that you even suggested it. ;)

    I believe we get it Halcyon, your observations of grammar are impeccable.

    However, I think the topic at hand is not grammatical humor but rather a writing festival down in the land of Oz.

    Which, being a Yank, I won't be showing up at ;)

    I'd love to go along, but it would be too difficult to organise a babysitter for the time my partner and I were over there for. We live in Western Australia. Not much happens over here. *sigh*
