International guests appearing at the conference include Cassie Hanjian, literary agent at US agency Waxman Leavell, and Carrie Feron, executive editor and senior vice president at US publisher William Morrow/Avon.

Keynotes will be delivered by local authors Marion Lennox, who has written over 100 books for Mills & Boon, and Kate Forsyth, who will also present a full-day workshop for emerging and established writers.
