Been up before the larks this morning lamenting that I should be in Melbourne right now… sigh. But a sold out class does make me feel a tiny bit better. Hello Writers Victoria… I’m ready for you.

Teeling Tales in Melbourne

Melbourne Here I Come!
I’m excited to be returning to Australia in November. I’m teaching two classes at Writers Victoria, Australia.
‘That Killer First Chapter’ – all day workshop on Sunday Nov 19th
‘Everything a Debut Novelist Needs to Know’ – an evening talk on Monday Nov 20th.
The last time I visited the Writers Centre Melbourne my class sold out in 30 mins – the fastest in their 10 year history.
I hope to visit my good friend, Australian author Cate Kennedy, while I’m there and maybe visit Adelaide or Perth. I’ll keep you posted on any new details.
Hope to see some of you there…
