We all have a unique way of looking at the world and a unique way we experience and interpret events in our own lives. When we write professionally, we usually have to write characters we’ve never met – cops, specialists, serial killers – even aliens… so how do you find your voice within all these characters and worlds? Using The Kettering Incident Vicki Madden will talk through her life experiences that shaped Anna Macy and all the characters and themes from Kettering…
When: Sunday 30 July 2017, 9am to 1.30 pm
Where: Mercury Cinema, 13 Morphett St, Adelaide SA 5000
Tickets: $20 for members, $30 for non-members
