Overall this would be approx £1100  (AUS$2200) Fees would vary slightly according to length of submissions and overall length of finished manuscript.

Workshops and Talks:  Fees vary according to participant numbers and the hosting organisation so I adapt my fees as required or operate my workshops on a gift basis on the understanding that my basic costs are covered. This means that I ask participants to book their place in a workshop and pay a deposit. They are then free to make a donation based on what they can afford.

For those on a limited income there is some flexibility with fees and they will also vary for other currencies so do get in touch if you would to discuss this further.
