Scissors Paper Pen is stoked to be a part of the inaugural Digital Writers’ Festival. It’s a writers’ festival on the internet!

Scissors Paper Pen’s very own Duncan Felton will be one of the panellists on IRL: Literary Collectives and Place, alongside other panellists from journals, collectives and other literary projects around Australia. As with most DWF events, you can watch the panel and join the discussion via Twitter using #DWF14.

But on top of all that, Scissors Paper Pen is embracing both the festival and the panel’s theme, and smooshing the IRL and the digital together. This means SPP is teaming up with the ACT Digital Hub at Gungahlin Library to gather people together and screen the panel session on their big fancy NBN-fuelled screens. This will be followed by a roundtable discussion, where you can ask further questions about the panel, Scissors Paper Pen, writing, social media, the Digital Hub, each other, whatever! Plus there will be free snacks. In fact, like most of the festival, this whole shebang is FREE. All you need to bring is yourself and any of your preferred writing implements and/or digital devices.

But please, RSVP to writetoscissorspaperpen@gmail.com to confirm your spot , with a sentence or three about yourself and why you’re interested in attending the session and being a part of the roundtable discussion. Spots are limited, and (in keeping with SPP’s aims) preference will be given to those under 35, so RSVP ASAP! Limited transport support is also available.

The event runs on Wednesday 19th February, from 5.45pm for a 6pm start. The panel finishes at 7 and the roundtable finishes by 8pm.

Hope to see you there and/or see you online!
