  2. To discuss various aspects of the writing industry including in dependant publishing, booksellers and distribution, writing courses, markets etc within Australia.
"The venue is a short bus ride from Sydney city, Central Station and the airport. Adjacent to the University of NSW, it offers single or double/twin rooms from $120 single, or $125 double. There is also cheap, single (share facilities) accommodation available at New College at the University of NSW ($49.50 pn). The college is approximately a 2 block walk from Barker Lodge. Also within 4 blocks of the venue are cheap eats such as McDonalds, coffee shops, and asian restaurants. Two extensive 2nd hand bookshops are also a short drive/bus ride away at Randwick.
