Oz Authors Online!

So many author event cancellations have left many authors in the lurch. Especially authors bringing out books now. So in their usual community minded way, some LoveOzYA authors have teamed together to create oz authors online.

OzAuthors Online came into being following the cancellations of author events due to Covid-19. Rather than idly sit by in lockdown, members of the Australian literary community decided that the long-time friend of authors – the internet – could be put to work once more. Seeking to find a way to offer some alternatives to cancelled book launches, author appearances, and panels; Wai Chim, Anna Whateley, Danielle Binks, Shivaun Plozza, A B Endacott, and Jin Wang, reached out to members of the community and were greeted with overwhelming support and assistance, which enabled OzAuthors Online to quickly establish itself and offer authors a way to digitally interact with the community.

The team is made up of many of our favourite writers like Wai Chim and Danielle Binks and has brought together YA live events to the one place – which is terrific for readers like us!

Check out the event page for both upcoming events you can join to watch AND some recorded past events with Poppy Nwosu, Katya de Becerra and Sarah Epstein.

I like the cover I would just change the font. It would look so much more aesthetic if maybe the font from the paperback of The Gravity Of Us was used??

I love Oz Authors Online! I’ve ‘attended’ a few of their book launches and they’re really fun!
