The Reading Room has partnered with  the Australian Women Writers Challenge to organise a series of Hangouts with some of our favourite authors and you are invited to participate!

We are looking for up to 12 people  to participate in three scheduled Hangouts during June, with more opportunities to come through the year. Each Hangout will include 3-5 interviewers along with a representative from The Reading Room and the author, of course!

You will need to be able to access  Google Hangouts and prepare 3-4 questions for the author.

If you would like to join one of the panels below, please nominate the author Hangout you would like to participate in by contacting me at with Google Hangout in the Subject Line by Monday 27th May. Interviewers will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so be quick!


June 18th: Honey Brown, author of Dark Horse, After the Darkness, The Good Daughter and Red Queen

TBA: Kate Belle, author of The Yearning

TBA: Jennifer Scoullar, author of Brumby’s Run and Currawong Creek


We also invite you to nominate other Australian women authors  you would like to Hangout with in the comments and we will do our best to make it happen!

Even if you can’t join the panel, you can watch the live streaming and submit text questions, or watch the whole interview anytime at The Reading Room.

You can see a recent Hangout with author Jenn J McLeod and AWW participants on YouTube
