Hot Desk Writer | Renee McBryde
Renee McBryde is an Alice Springs writer who published her first book, The House of Lies with Hachette Australia in 2017. Renee was our NT Writers Centre Hot Desk writer from July to December 2019 and has been working on her new book. This is what she had to say about the experience:
“For the last few months I have had the privilege of writing at the NT Writers Centre hot desk in Alice Springs. For a time pressed mother of four who is trying to pull together a second book, having access to a quiet place, already set up for bashing out as many words as possible the moment I step through the door has been a dream. Often, I arrive to the hot desk before my children and husband are awake. I sit down, knowing that I won’t be interrupted and write without breath until my fingers and neck are sore and the words are like a deep pool of ink before my eyes.
The Hot Desk has enabled me to focus on my words and bring this new project to a new level of focus. Stay tuned for more developments on this project!”
