Public Speaking

Valerie Barnes

Valerie has given talks all over Australia: she was keynote speaker in Darwin at the 9th National Languages Conference of the Australian Language Teachers' Associations (AFMLTA) and has been asked to speak at various venues in Canberra regarding the importance of Australian government officials learning languages when handling matters of trade, especially when travel is involved. Valerie has also given talks at Wollongong & Ulladulla Friends of the Library (future talks are planned for Nowra and Kiama), and at various Literary Festivals and Writers' Festivals in Sydney, Canberra and at Newington College Literature Festival, Shearers bookshop in Leichardt, Sydney, and the South Coast Writers' Centre.
