Omega Writers Book Fair (Brisbane) – connecting readers with Australasian Christian writers and books.
After a short hiatus, the Book Fair is on again – in March this year. The 2016 event was a great success and we are hoping for even more authors and readers this year. Displays, readings, giveaways. There will be displays from local authors; fiction and nonfiction books for all ages; presentation of readings, poetry, book reviews, book promos; workshops; prizes and giveaways. This is a great opportunity to raise awareness of the range of Christian authors and books available (both fiction and nonfiction) and for readers to connect with authors, browse and buy books.
Workshop – Inspiring Humour
Award winning creator of comic-strip Swamp, Diesel Dog and Ding Duck, Gary Clark will present a workshop at the Omega Writers Book Fair on finding and conveying humour. Gary’s unique brand of humour was inspired by exploring the creeks, ponds and bush of suburban Brisbane of his childhood. His comics are syndicated to newspapers throughout Australia, New Zealand and Europe and translated into seven languages. Swamp first published in 1981 in the Sunshine Coast Daily and has elicited smiles and laughter ever since. sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/news/swamp-hits-10000/2056933/
