Pip Courtney – details soon
I am a journalist and author, a political tragic and rural resident. I live on a farm but float between The Paddock and The Parliament, specifically the Canberra press gallery.
I am excited to be on board The Hoopla as political correspondent. Most recently, I wrote The Sketch for The Australian newspaper, where I did my cadetship 28 years ago. I have also worked for the ABC, The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph and the good old arvo tub thumper, Daily Mirror, which has since closed down.
My books as author/editor include Australia Through Time, Flickers of History, War On Our Doorstep and FEAST.
Vivien is a local farmer, author and past president of Australian Women in Agriculture. We are delighted to once again have Vivien join us as one of the moderators at this years’ Jugiong Writers’ Festival.
Deb is an energetic sales rep with publisher Allen and Unwin covering Canberra and southern New South Wales, and any lucky enough to know her, know of her passion for reading and great books. She is a remarkable lady and a terrific interviewer and we look forward to welcoming her to this year’s festival as a moderator.
