I'm surprised to see that I read many of these in college. They were course requirements, and/or used as teaching aids.


I studied Political Science and American Studies in college so none of these made the required reading list. Liz

Hi Liz - The organiser has confirmed the venue for the Australian Freelance Journalism Conference - the Manly Pacific Hotel, Sydney.

I've started a writing blog - - still some tweaking to do), and have linked to you in my post about the conference, and in my blogroll.

Hope to meet you at the conference.



Hi Yvonne, thanks for the info. I've posted it as well as the location for the NZ conference. I'm still hoping to attend both, but it ain't cheap crossing the pond so might only make the NZ one. Time will tell. Hope you enjoy blogging. Will be stopping by to see how it's going. Cheers, Liz
