 NICK EARLS – Guest Speaker Saturday Night Dinner.

Nick Earls writes long, short and medium-sized fiction, so far including thirteen novels and numerous shorter works. With the publication of the Word Hunters trilogy in 2012/13, he is now officially also a writer for children. Reputable reviewers have compared his work with that of Nick Hornby, Raymond Carver, Martin Amis, VS Naipaul, JD Salinger, Woody Allen and Jeffrey Eugenides, which just goes to show that, if you write enough and publish enough, anything can come your way.

 ‘This project was made possible by the Australian Government's Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.’
