An Evening with the Two Kellys
Two well-known Central West writers will be getting together to talk about the triumphs and challenges of writing stories close to their hearts and taking those stories to the world.
When Australians think literary talent, they don’t immediately think beyond the sandstone curtain of the Great Divide.
Yet, these two writers have been quietly carving out successful careers and delighting readers from all over the globe.
Kelly Rimmer and Kim Kelly each write different stories and in different styles but share a dedicated passion for telling them. Come and be inspired by their tales tall and true.
