On Monday 8 April, Canberra readers, writers and lovers of story-telling gathered to catch number-one New York Times bestselling author, Victoria Schwab, on her Australian tour.
In over an hour of conversation, facilitated by Canberra author and Shirley-Jackson Award-winner, Kaaron Warren, Victoria delved into her unique career as a writer (the only thing she’s really ever been) and the ways she has honed her voice as a singular, beloved author.
From what she does when she hits a sticky bit of writing, to that time she contemplated wiping out a host of major characters in one of her best-known series, Victoria shared candid and funny moments with her audience. She also examined the strategy behind her legendary world-building, and its uses specifically in relation to building better characters, and more convincing conflicts.
Twitter is the best place to catch up with Victoria as she continues travelling around Australia: @veschwab
The ACT Writers Centre would like to thank its event partner, Dymocks Canberra, venue partner, the Gorman Arts Centre, and Victoria’s publishers, New South Books, for bringing her to a very appreciative Canberra crowd.
