Life Cycle of The Book

Short Stories...

Creative Clunes has developed a project called the ‘Life Cycle of The Book’ where we produced several short films with stories and interviews around the book, from a germ of an idea to the end of the physical book’s life. Our aim is to promote our authors, publishers, libraries, book clubs and book sellers with this project, which is being supported by Creative Victoria.

Thank you to McPherson’s printing in Maryborough, the State Library of Victoria, Creswick Library, Readings Bookstores, Somekind Books, Pie Thief, Authors Vikki Petraitis and Emma Viskic, Bolinda audiobooks, Hardie Grant publishers and Westside Stories Book Club. 

Music: “The Book I’m Not Reading” by Patty Larkin c 1997 BMG Songs Inc/Lost Lake Arts/Lamartine Music (ASCAP).


In a series of online events, we will delve into the book industry, sharing tips from our expert panels of writers, editors, publishers and more on the inner workings of the industry. Learn about everything from effective pitching to publishers through to book design, printing, digital books, marketing, and book sales. If you are a new or emerging writer, or an established author keen to know more about your industry we have a session for you.

Tickets sales coming soon.
