Think you have a story, but don’t know where to start? In an intimate setting, Alison Jones will share the important lessons she learned as a first-time author. Bring all your burning writer-questions! Spaces are limited!


Alison Jones is the author of the Jones Family Food Roster, a memoir about how a busy, mother of five school-aged children was diagnosed with a rare and incurable cancer, and how she agonised about her future and the effect her treatment regime would have on her family. Her community rallied around her, bringing home-cooked meals prepared with love, which enabled her to come together with her family every evening for dinner. Her book, interspersed with some of these recipes, is heart-warming and honest. Alison was recently interviewed in Melbourne by ABC broadcaster and writer, Sian Prior.
