Got a question about writing? Ask it at the Tell-a-thon. On the third day of the Pirate Radio broadcast, local word nerds The Good Copy cast the advice net wide, roping in panellists from the mysterious worlds of copywriting, crosswords, proofreading, poetry and more. Bring a question, make a donation to Wildlife Victoria’s bushfire appeal and the Tell-a-thon team will … ahem … tell you what they know.
The writing-themed Pirate Radio broadcast will be happening all day, from 10am to 5pm. Feel free to pull up a stool and watch it live.
The Tell-a-thon help desk will be set up next to the Pirate Radio station at the St Kilda Road entrance.
If you decide to book a chat with a Tell-a-thon panellist, don’t worry, it won’t be broadcast! Your donation buys you a one-on-one conversation with a word nerd.
To book in for a chat, visit the Tell-a-thon help desk in person any time from 10am on Sunday 15 March and make your donation for Wildlife Victoria. You can donate $5 for a 3-minute chat, $10 for a 5-minute chat or $20 for a 10-minute chat.
The Good Copy is a writing school and a shop for word people. A proud team of nerds, they run workshops, sell books, and host Collingwood’s longest-running crossword club.
