Emerging writers, Maddee and I are doing a session at the 2022 National Editors and Writers Conference (NEWS Conference) later this month. There’s also a keynote from writer and editor Adalya Nash Hussein, and workshops on interviewing skills, podcasting, criticism, and much more.
And if you’re trans/nonbinary/gender-diverse, you can also catch me and Maddee dishing our career advice in The Drop-In this month.

Are you just starting out in writing and editing? We’ve all been there! Join Jinghua Qian and Maddee Clark as they discuss their experiences of starting out in the industry and give tips on things they wish they’d known.
A workshop for members of marginalised, underrepresented and misrepresented groups on how to assess and respond to media requests. Presented by freelance reporter Jinghua Qian with support from the Foundation for Young Australians.
People from marginalised backgrounds often have good reason to distrust the media. At the same time, it can be a valuable way of getting your voice heard. So I wanted to offer a workshop on how to talk to journalists without feeling like you’re losing control of your own story.
In November I’ll be presenting a workshop on editing criticism at the Editing Micro-Festival. The online festival runs 13 to 15 November with a fab line-up of presenters: Elena Gomez, Khalid Warsame, Hella Ibrahim, Cher Tan, Alison Evans, Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen, Mel Campbell, and Matilda Dixon-Smith (who’s also the festival organiser). Check out the full program here and please come along if you have even a passing interest in critical writing, it’s fine if you can’t pay anything.
