Public Speaking and Mentoring

Engagements for public speaking are negotiated by Booked Out Speakers Agency, at . I speak on the subjects of refugees; creating life stories; indigenous cultures, and the techniques of writing fiction. Booked Out can arrange speaking engagements at schools, clubs, festivals, professional gatherings, libraries. Reading groups might wish to contact me directly. Bookings that pair Najaf Mazari and me speaking about The Rugmaker of Mazar-e-Sharif are handled by the booking agency.


Mentoring on the writing of life stories and the techniques of fiction are arranged directly with me at the contact address, or through Writers Victoria, at
