Sydney Writers' Festival 2011

The program for the Sydney Writers' Festival has been made available via its website, and there are some not-to-be-missed opportunities for writers and readers alike.

Would-be authors will love the When Preparation Meets Opportunity session with writer Phillipa Fioretti, which will give writers plenty of tips on how to get noticed by publishers.

And then there's the unmissable So You Think You Can Write international session, where audience members have three minutes to pitch their work to a panel of agents and publishers.

Readers will love any number of talks, organised by genre, featured on the website.

My picks include a session with Australian crime author Garry Disher, Tightening the Screws: Creating Tension and Suspense in Crime Fiction, and Lawyers, Guns and Money with bestselling US crime writer Michael Connolly.

From Harry Potter to Tim Winton: How to Write for Young Adults with Belinda Jeffrey sounds promising, as does Reporting from the Inside with journalists Elisabeth Wynhausen and Anna Krien.

Of course there are many, many more talks and workshops of interest - some free, some for a fee - so get in quick and book your tickets!
