Arts Events in Melbourne November 15 – November 21

Small Aussie publishers should be celebrated

Are there some fabulous Aussie books you’ve read this year that just haven’t received their dues? Tonight, the Wheeler Centre will be hosting Totally Underrated: a presentation of the Most Underrated Book Award 2013, a free event celebrating some of these unsung books from small and independent Aussie publishers.

How fares the NaNoWriMoing? If you’re flagging – or on a roll – and you just want to be around other writers, then there’s a city write-in tonight at Network Public Bar and Pizzeria at Southern Cross Station from 9pm, and one on Saturday November 16 at Richmond Library from 10am.

The Melbourne Music Video Festival is launching tonight ahead of its February 2014 event. If you’re anything like us and you’re still hungry for music videos after the fantastic Spectacle exhibition at ACMI, then this sounds kind of perfect.

There is a free romance writing workshop with historical romance author Beverley Eikli at City Library on Monday November 18. Beverley will be discussing how to identify your market. 

For those with an interest in literary publishing and the online space, the Small Press Network will be discussing digital publishing in The Digital Era on Monday November 18.

And a special event to commemorate the 50th anniversary of C.S. Lewis’s death will be held on Thursday November 21 at City Library. Leading fantasy and children’s authors including Alison Croggon, Kate Constable and Michael Pryor will be appearing on a panel to discuss how his books have influenced their work.
