Winter Networking & Speed Book Launches

Join us for a winter networking event with a speed launch twist!

In honour of our hardworking members who didn't (or don't) get to have a book launch, we're coming to the party with a party!

Join us at the State Library's Institute Building for a series of speed launches, where a selection of authors will introduce their book and read a short excerpt. Once the launches have concluded, we'll have a drink, some nibbles and networking where you can ask the authors about their journey and maybe even buy a copy for yourself (cash sales only). As usual, Writers SA staff will be on hand for a chat too.

Our 2023 presenting authors are Martha Landman, Russell Westmoreland, Fay Lee, Stella Damarjati, Pamela Morrison, Bernadette Eden, R A Wodecki, Suzi Hall and Rob George. You can find out more about their books here.

We can't wait to see you there and celebrate the wins together.

This event is open to everyone to attend.
