Arnold Zable. I remember Cafe Sheherazade as being beautifully written, his wonderful tale of the Melbourne cafe and the lives of its owners and patrons. I can't believe I'm going to get the chance hear insights from such a master of his craft - a very exciting opportunity. The course outline says it will focus on both fiction and non-fiction, so it will be really worthwhile. I'll let you know more once I've been!
Have you attended workshops with your creative heroes? If so, I'd love to hear more!
Have you read Cafe Sheherezade or anything else written by Arnold Zable? I can remember loving it so much, I'd consider it a must read. Track it down and let me know what you think!
