Write Along The Highway Writers Festival!
Sponsored by the wonderful support of local businesses and our participating councils, Write Night! is a fabulous night of writing, games, prizes, and tasty treats. The night features a panel of Perth literary professionals and live music. It’s an event not to be missed! Bring your writing with you, by way of laptop, tablet, or pen and paper because we’ll be adding new words with a few word wars. For those of you participating in National Novel Writing Month it might just be the final push you need to reach your 50,000 words!
Don’t forget to bring your brochure/passport along with you too because that will give you another opportunity to win some fantastic prizes. I hope you’ve been remembering to collect stickers at each of the events you attended through October and November!

After graduating with a degree in engineering from Cambridge University, Robert worked as a structural engineering consultant, designing signature architecture including East Croydon Station, The Eden Project, Madrid Airport, Lichfield Theatre, and the London Imax Theatre. He then travelled to Australia, and finding no call for creative architectural engineering in Perth, adapted his skills to the mining and offshore industries, and for the last dozen years has been working in the gold industry. Whatever time he has left after working, writing, and wrangling three young children, he spends reading, cycling, kayaking on the Blackwood River, and maintaining his scooter: a beautiful 1972 Vespa Rally.
