So what an amazing way to end the working week. I did my first memoir workshop at Brimbank last night and met so many amazing emerging writers. Was floating all day from feeding off the energy and inspiration of everyone there. And now my radio interview with 3CR has dropped and it also features author Gabrielle Wang, who is so amazing. And I've been featured in an Arts Hub interview by the beautiful and talented Thuy On. Thank you so much for shining a light on self publishing. So, I'm just kind of floating in outerspace right now.
