THE TRUTH ABOUT US - Calling all Non-fiction Authors

The 2010 Reality Bites Literary Non-fiction Festival is seeking submissions from local writers of literary non-fiction for possible inclusion in the forthcoming festival to be held 24 July - 1 August.

Writers of history, genealogy, memoir, environmental issues -- anything true -- are welcome to send a synopsis of their work for consideration. Deadline for submission is 15 March 2010.

Work must be published, either by an established publisher or self published. The Director will assess submissions on their quality and how the work fits with the themes of the programme. For further information go to the festival website at or contact the festival director.

In addition, we will be holding a pitching clinic again this year and invite authors with unpublished true stories to register for that session by submitting a synopsis. The panel will listen to your five minute pitch and advise you how best to get your idea up. Open to any form, screenwriting, prose, theatre etc, but the story must be true.
