Rosalie Ham the author of The Dressmaker taught at *Wordfest2018.
I was lucky enough to be able to attend her creative writing workshop and sheepishly asked her to sign my book at the end of the class, which she was only too happy to do! She commented it was lovely to sign a real life physical book and wished me luck with my writing.
I received some good productive tips to tighten my work and made a few new fellow writer friends . Overall I am glad I attended it was one of the best workshops I have attended at a writing festival.
*WordFest is the annual literature festival of the Monash Public Library Service. The festival brings readers and writers together for a series of author talks, writing workshops and competitions.
Personal Note: I was disappointed in the fact I noticed a spelling mistake, that the ink on this machine was very faint and that the machine mechanics were filthy and sticking as it needs a service. However, the person I wrote it for liked it for its imperfection when I offered to redo it. So here it is, made from a 1921 Underwood I was gifted and used for the first time this week.
