Songwriters' conference deferred for a year
The Australian Songwriters' Conference to be held at Ettalong has been deferred for a year.
Conference organiser Ms Lisa Butler said: "After much consideration, and in the best interest of Australian songwriters as well as the event itself, we have decided to defer the conference and hold the next one in 2018, with a view to holding the event every two years after that.
"The new dates are Thursday, June 7, to Monday, June 11, 2018," Ms Butler said.
"By running the event biennially, there will be more time to apply for funding and to encourage registrations through promotion and marketing to songwriters and the music industry.
"There will be more time to organise the conference and procure the very best hit songwriters and industry professionals.
"We have reconfirmed a number of the 2017 speakers and mentors for our 2018 Faculty, including Grammy award winning Los Angeles songwriter, Alan Roy Scott, hit Australian writer and producer team, Barbara and Adrian Hannan, and hit pop-urban-Christian artist and writer, Gary Pinto," she said.
Others who have already committed to the 2018 event include Diana Torossian, Matthew Donlevy and Jack Nigro.
