------   Siv Parker - Award winning writer, poet & commentator...

Hilarious. Brilliant characters. 

Well-written. Has potential to gain and satisfy a loyal readership.

Laugh out loud funny.                Beautiful, terrifying, read.

I was riveted. The writing is exceptional and very spare and punchy.

…written in a haunting noir worthy of Nick Cave at his best.

Hilarious, experimental and well grounded.

Simply stunning, a must read.
Wow. Terrifying. I loved it.  

....warm, rich, unique voice and evocative storytelling.

There is no tweet yarn school.

Or – there wasn’t one till I started planning.

Stay tuned – following popular demand, I’m putting together a 3 day workshop.

Social Media Bootcamp – in 3 days participants will create for themselves... 

a new blog 
a Twitter handle 
and populate both with enough content to get them on their way to multi media fame and fortune.

Workshops are planned for Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra over the next six months.
