Invite Irma to be part of your event...

Irma loves any excuse to get on a mic and chat with other writers about her books or theirs. If you’d like Irma to appear at an event or festival, get in touch via the contact page.

And in the meantime, have a listen to her in-conversation event with Craig Silvey where they chat about his days as a ukelele rock star, the Cleo bachelor incident and why biscuit book art is where it’s at. They do also talk about his latest book, Runt.

‘She’s always good in the interviewer’s chair, being both warm in manner and astute about writing.’ Whispering Gums
