Q & A with author Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott
Whether describing everyday events, love and loss, complex plots or mystery drama, when used effectively, the writer’s palette paints a vivid and vibrant picture in the mind of the reader evoking emotion and engaging the reader in a new experience.
Date: Sunday September 27
Time: 2.30 - 4.00pm
Kelleigh’s background in screenwriting gives her work a very visual and strong sense of place and time and her characterisation is highly nuanced. Her debut novel Swan Song, a fictionalised reimagining of the later life of US author Truman Capote tells of the writer’s last years in the voices of the society women or “Swans” whom he befriended and then betrayed. The novel won this year’s McKitterick Prize, was longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction and shortlisted for the Goldsboro Award. Kelleigh is currently adapting Swan Song as a limited series for television.
Kelleigh will also talk about her journey to getting published including finding her agent, Curtis Brown’s Karolina Sutton, 2020 Agent of the Year and what she is working on now.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions.
