Tomorrow I'm off to Rockhampton, my hometown, for a couple of days. I will be giving a talk at the Southside Library on Wednesday, the 31st of August, from 7:00-8:00pm. It's part of the library's regular Living Literature series of talks. I think I'll read some poems and then talk about the writing process for Electricity for Beginners, the benefits of undertaking a creative writing degree, and my experience of the publication process. Tomorrow afternoon I meet up with ABC Capricornia's Aaron Stevens. I think we're recording something for his Wednesday radio show, with librarian Ann-Maree Dyer, who coordinates the Living Literature series, and who invited me up to Rocky to give a talk. I'm really looking forward to my brief visit. Astonishingly, it's been five years since I was last in Rockhampton! I hear that a lot has changed. I'm keen to see the brand new library, where I'll be reading, and the new, or newly extended, Shopping Fair complex, where I spent many an hour during my teenage years.
