Griffith University Conference

Had the great pleasure last week to be invited to the anual Griffith University postgraduate conference, called Borders Boundaries and Transgressions. It was at the Gold Coast campus.  The day was filled with great postgraduate papers, on a whole range of topics, from acquired brain injury, to artist rights, to social media and gothic fiction. My part of the day came at the end when I was asked to speak to the postgraduates about careers post the PhD.  I spoke about my life as a writer, the media I had done, my experiences volunteering for mental health NGO's and gave some advice about the PhD experience itself.  A great day was had by all, and looking forward to next year!
