Perth meet-up with Will Yeoman

Monday 20 October 2014
Time: 6.30–8.30pm
Although the official time is from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, you are welcome to stay as long as you like – and we imagine many of you will!


William Yeoman is Literary Editor and West Weekend Staff Writer at The West Australian, and will be sharing with us his advice on successfully pitching your work to an editor, as well as insights into getting publicity for your book through the media.

As well as being a commissioning editor, William is also a regular contributor to classical music magazines Gramophone, International Record Review and Limelight, as well as classical music website Sinfini.

Will has also been a chair at the Melbourne, Singapore and Perth writers' festivals, is a regular pre-concert speaker for the WA Symphony Orchestra and an occasional guest on 6PR and ABC 720 radio. He is also working on his first novel.


This is a wonderful opportunity for you to mingle with, and be inspired by, other like-minded people at various stages on their writing journey.

The night will include ice-breaking activities, a Q&A with guest speaker William Yeoman and Australian Writers’ Centre State Director Alecia Hancock. You will also have the chance to ask William your own questions. This is an incredible opportunity to get valuable advice from someone who commissions work from freelancers on a daily basis, as well as reviewing books on behalf of WA’s daily newspaper – so come prepared!

We encourage you to bring two friends who share your passion for writing. If you bring a guest, both you and your guests will go into the draw to win special prizes on the night.
