Melbourne Writers’ Festival

I’m an author guest at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival this year! In addition to my events in the Schools program, which I wrote about in another post, you can catch me at YA Day on 1 September and at A Day of Romance on 8 September.

On YA Day, I’ll be talking with Nina Kenwood and Michelle Smith about writing messy teenage relationships in It’s Complicated: details here.

On A Day of Romance, I’ll be moderating a panel with CS Pacat, Anne Gracie, and Melanie Milburne, where we’ll be talking about how romance reacts to political and cultural events in Romance as Resistance: details here.

Jodi on the radio!

I was on Myf Warhurst’s show on ABC radio a couple of days ago, talking about love, romance, and the idea of “the one”, along with Gery Karantzas (who also works at Deakin University). You can listen here: How Romance Killed Love.

(NB: the title isn’t necessarily a reflection of my opinion!)
