From ARRC committee: The program is still a work in progress — as we send out speaker invitations and receive responses we might change or shuffle some sessions. But this will give you an idea of the amazing line up we have so far. There will also be two book-signing sessions of 1.5 hours each — one on Saturday afternoon and one on Sunday afternoon.

Time to start building your bank accounts in time for February, Melburnians!

  1. This sounds like a great time! Wish I could be there…

  2. Hey Tez!

    I’m so glad you posted this. I hope to meet you in Melboune!!

    Hugs,
    Destiny Blaine

  3. Hope you enjoy my city 🙂 Be warned that Melbourne is “four seasons in one day”, so make sure to pack your umbrella, as well as a sunhat 😉

    Due to funds I don’t think I’ll be able to attend any panels, but I hear there’s a big signing session on Sunday that I can afford ($20). Just be loud and boisterous with your accent, and I’ll find you 😉 (I imagine there’ll be a lot of Aussies, so you’ll need to stand out ;-))

    See you in Feb, and have a lovely day! 🙂
