The Dan Davin Foundation Short Story Symposium
Message from Tim Jones:
I was a guest at the Dan Davin Literary Festival in
Invercargill a few years ago and really enjoyed it.
The Dan Davin Foundation is now hosting a Short Story
Symposium from 1-3 September, and organiser Becs Amundsen has asked me & other authors who've taken part in the Festival to pass the word along about
this. They are looking for expressions of interest in attending, and also for
people willing to offer papers - which, Becs tells me, can be informal rather
If you're interested, please contact Becs as shown below. I
have a potential clash of schedules to resolve first, but providing I can sort
that out, I plan to be there and perhaps offer a (lamentably informal) paper as
well. Southern hospitality is not to be missed!
