Frances Peck (at right) and Ruth DyckFehderau will be launching their latest novels Uncontrolled Flight (NeWest $24.95) and I (Athena) (NeWest $23.95), during the Writer’s Day Out event in Victoria. Both these talented authors will also be participating in an exclusive book reading, following a Q&A and a signing on that day.

The day is lined up with other exciting activities for all reading and writing enthusiasts, including but not limited to, a Book Fair, a Live Prose Feedback session with Dr. Ruth DyckFehderau and Frances Peck, and a Writing Space with coffee, tea and snacks.

The book fair will be supporting writers in any genre from any method of publication, encouraging avid readers to pick up books for themselves or a friend. Novice, aspiring and seasoned writers could also submit a sample of their work to obtain feedback from the authors that will be addressing the crowd on that day. Writers can submit a fiction or creative non-fiction piece of no longer than one page. What’s more, if your creative juices are flowing, tables will be set up for those inspired to write and work on their craft.
