As plans for the inaugural Festival of Independent Writers and
Publishers progress, we’re pleased to announce the appearance of Patt Gregory,
author of Woodwork for Women.
I fell totally in love with
wood when I joined an evening woodwork class for women in Bristol, UK in 1984.
In pursuit of my passion I trained full time as a Carpenter/Joiner. I learned everything
from stair casing to roofing and dovetail joints in cabinetmaking.
In 1985 I helped set up a
Women’s Workshop in Bath, UK and began teaching woodwork to unemployed women.
Over the past 13 years I have
been teaching basic furniture making from my home workshop in Mullumbimby NSW.

It’s all go with the Festival of Independent Writers and
Publishers to be held on the Gold Coast on 29 October 2011. The program is
coming together nicely, with an exciting array of speakers and interviewers
We’re privileged to have on board Stephanie Dale, who
recently won an award in the USA for the best indie-published novel in the
Australia/New Zealand category. Stephanie has made a spectacular success of
marketing her books, and in her session, Going Solo, she’ll impart plenty of
hints and tips to other aspiring indies.
