I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I wanted to just give this a bit of a push. I’m going to be in Australia from next week onwards, appearing at the Sports Writers Festival taking place in Melbourne and Sydney.
The Melbourne event is on October 28th and I’m in Sydney on November 4th. This is the info that’s on their site.
SESSIONS: Arseblog in Australia
SPEAKER: Andrew Mangan in conversation with Francis Leach
SESSION INFO: Can you turn your passion for your team into a career as a sports writer? Andrew Mangan has. Andrew Mangan is one of football’s most celebrated bloggers and podcasters. In 2002, he began writing about Arsenal at www.arseblog.com and he’s been doing it daily ever since. Andrew also created the Arsecast podcast in 2006, now one of the longest running sports podcasts anywhere in the world. Along the way, his website and podcasts have won a stack of awards and entertained a global audience of Arsenal fans. Andrew will talk about creating Arseblog and Arsecast, his passion for Arsenal, his thoughts on the future of football and fandom, and his enduring love for Robert Pires.
You can get more details and ticket info on the website.
Also, it’d be great to meet up with some Australian Gooners while down there, there are some games on, so hopefully we can have a beer even if you can’t make the events.
