Tim Low is a Brisbane biologist and author of seven books about nature and conservation. Four have won prizes, including Where Song Began, which reached best-seller lists and became the first nature book to win the Australian Book Industry Award for Best General Non-fiction. Reviewing it in the New York Review of Books, Tim Flannery admitted to being "astonished again and again". Feral Future inspired the formation of a conservation group, the Invasive Species Council.
Tim has served on the Australian environment minister's advisory committee, was a co-editor of Wildlife Australia magazine, writes a blog for Australian Geographic, and has written for many publications including the Weekend Australian magazine and Vogue. He was recently appointed a judge of the NSW Premier's Literary Awards.
Tim will talk about the challenges of being an author in Brisbane and the role editors play in authors' survival.
