Since the last issue I have had the opportunity of being invited to the Williamstown Literary Festival on the 13th of May. One of the features of the festival was the book launch of Paul Collins’ Quentarus series. Also enjoying the occasion were other Author Patrons Meredith Costain and Anna Ciddor dressed appropriately with the theme. My children and I couldn’t resist dressing up either.
Hazel Edwards has offered her book ‘Antarctic Dad’, and the opportunity to meet her and the book’s illustrator Kevin Burgemeestre, as a prize for using your artistic flair in drawing or writing. Read more on page 7 and see the review by psychologist Judy Parker.
Also included in this issue is a story sent to us from the Netherlands. These are sent from an Australian student currently living overseas with her family. It just shows how far the Internet can reach and how far your stories and poems can travel.
