The second annual Mornington Peninsula & Frankston Writers and Book Festival is just around the corner, so get your proverbial skates on and ‘book’ yourself a spot to explore and adore all things writerly.

From October 19-20, a who’s who of authors and guest speakers will be coming together to read, discuss and deliver their thoughts on the current state of literature, climate change, crime fiction and the artistry of the spoken word — and you’re going to enjoy it. This is an event for everyone who loves to read and write and discuss books. It is also spot-on for those of you on the Peninsula who are wishing to self-publish and meet and greet like-minded individuals.

The festival is a not-for-profit community-sponsored event co-ordinated by the Frankston Writers & Poets Society. This year, get along to Functions by the Bay in Frankston to be part of the ‘lit’ crowd and enjoy talks by the Rev Tim Costello, who will open the festival and talk about his latest book (see this edition for our interview with the man himself); Professor Ross Garnaut, who will be discussing his book on climate change; and the critically acclaimed spoken word artist and cabaret performer Amy Bodossian, to name a few. Dunkley federal Labor MP Peta Murphy will launch the Mornington Peninsula & Frankston Writers’ inaugural anthology, Time and Tide, on Saturday, October 19, while Writers Victoria will be chairing a Q&A session featuring celebrated crime authors, including John Hookham, author of The Russian Class, and Kirsty Ferguson. Andrea McCall will be the MC.

The Peninsula is alive with residents writing books, whether in the form of memoirs, historical novels, children’s books or self-help manifestos. The Mornington Peninsula & Frankston Writers and Book Festival celebrates this dedication to communication by offering two days of discussions about writing, publishing and what it means to be a writer in this day and age. There’ll be workshops on unleashing your poetic voice, crafting compelling characters and finding out more about your publishing options. There will also be more than 50 emerging authors for you to meet, plenty of delicious food, including vegetarian and vegan options, and a drink or two for good measure. After all, why not raise a glass in appreciation of all those writers who have given of themselves to entertain, exchange and sometimes revolutionise your life.

Mornington Peninsula Magazine is proud to be a sponsor of this excellent event, which showcases the breadth of dedication to the written word from writers across the Peninsula and beyond. Sit back, listen and learn. The Mornington Peninsula & Frankston Writers and Book Festival is on and you’re invited. Log on to www.mpwritersfest.org to book your tickets and find out more.
