Carnival of Words

History of the Carnival of Words

The Carnival of Words is the brainchild of Nerida Marshall.  Nerida wanted to find a way to promote professional and emerging authors from the South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales.

Past Carnivals have had a theme which focused on a significant part of the creative process needed to produce fiction and nonfiction works.  Our Patron for this event is Australia’s multi-bestselling author, Peter Watt.

As a published author in the ‘Horror Genre’ I’m privileged that I was able to attend last year and this years ‘Carnival of Words’ festivals. They truly are festivals and Nerida has amazing authors attend these events.
