Special Announcement: The Penguin Random House National Bloggers Forum 2014


I am thrilled to finally share a secret I’ve been keeping for weeks!

The inaugural Penguin Random House National Book Bloggers Forum 2014!

Penguin Random House Australia is pleased to announce the inaugural National Book Bloggers Forum – a first-of-its-kind conference being held specifically for book bloggers in Sydney on Tuesday May 20. The free, one-day forum has been developed to foster a closer working relationship with the growing book blogging community.

The conference, coinciding with the opening day of the Sydney Writers Festival, will feature surprise guest authors, insights from publishers and sessions on blog promotion, as well as an open forum in the afternoon for bloggers to discuss whatever they see fit. This conference is a fantastic opportunity for bloggers to hear from publishing insiders as well as learn some best-practice tips on blogging. Winner of the 2013 Best Australian Blog Competition and Random House Australia author Sneh Roy is just one of the day’s guest speakers. The full program for the forum will be announced in coming weeks.

I’ll be there and I hope you will join me. It promises to be a fabulous opportunity for all Australian book bloggers.

I’ll be sharing more information as it becomes available and you can find more details at  http://www.randomhouse.com.au/bloggers-forum/

Bloggers not able to attend the conference can keep up with the conversation on Twitter by using the #NBBF14 hashtag or following @RandomHouseAU.

    Or in Perth! I’d love to go along, but it’s just too far for me.

    A bit too far to go from Perth for a day, but I’m sure you’ll tell us about it. What a great initiative on the part of Penguin Random House.

    This sounds like a wonderful event, Shelleyrae. I’m sure you’ll tell us all about it afterwards.

    Would love to be there, it sounds fantastic but finances and a grandbaby getting close will make it unlikely. Can’t wait to hear all about it!
