Chuffed to be the first writer of the 365 writer-a-day App launched by Varuna, the Writers’ House at Katoomba in the fabulous Blue Mountains west of Sydney. It will ultimately get to Itunes, but meanwhile, link is here. I read a short passage from ‘Minefields and Miniskirts’. Nothing fancy – had to do it in one take when the builder across the road finally put away his power tools for lunch – afraid at any moment he’d start up again!


Delighted to be invited to give a seminar at Concordia Uni’s excellent Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling, 6-8pm 17 October. It will be open to the public, and will showcase diverse stories I’ve researched over the years: a behind-the-scenes intro to Australian life.

UPDATE: Here’s an interview I did at COHDS about ‘treating’ oral history for radio.
