A "Writers' Convention" entitled Write (C)on will be held
over the weekend of 18–20 January 2002 at the Barker
Barker Lodge Motel, Barker St, Kensington NSW.
According to the Press Release, Write (C)on evolved from
"discussion held at the end of Nelcon in November, 2000" and
will be "a laid-back, relaxed weekend with two main aims:
"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.
"Membership to Write (C)on is $20. For this you will receive a con pack and
a copy of the anthology when it is edited after the convention. Guest
speakers are currently being approached. If you would like to be
invited to speak at this event, please contact Edwina
