Tomorrow morning a LOGAN NEWS photographer will arrive at my house to do a Photo Shoot for a story on Logan City Writers … YAY!
So why do I feel so damn ‘GUILTY’?
I promised my writing pals we’d be in a group shot together. But the Newspaper wants just me and one other writer … That’s it.
Somehow I feel I’ve let the group down.
Logan City Writers are such an enthusiastic lot, wanting to promote Creative Writing in Logan City and showcase the talent of writers who live there.
And so am I.
Last week I met with the Mayor, Pam Parker and the Logan Libraries Programmer, Janet Poole and put forward my ideas on how to Raise the Profile of Creative Writing in Logan City.
What are my plans?
• Promote Logan City as an emerging Literary Centre.
• Raise the profile of Logan Writers within the Logan Community and to greater Brisbane and Australia.
• Encourage and support Creative Writing within the Logan Community
I’ll be meeting with Janet Poole in the next few weeks to discuss practical ways to implement these ideas. Many exciting writing events are proposed.
I’m now asking all Logan City Writers to come forward to be involved, especially Published Writers. If you know anyone who may be interested, please spread the word.
I’ve formed a Facebook group, Logan City Writers for resident writers. (Type Logan into the search).
A supporters Fan Club will be set up soon.
Logan teachers, I invite you to join the Logan Writers Fan Club as several Logan writers are planning school visits.
Check out the gob-smacking talent we have in this region!
Tomorrow when Karen Webb Collum (Children’s author) and I say cheese for the photographer …
I hope Logan City Writers will understand we’re grinning for them all.
NB … This post and some comments were edited by the Moderator.
UPDATE … My son snapped these two photos after the official Photographer left. Clever boy!
Not bad for my first professional shoot …
What do you think of my new haircut? Coiffed and blow dried minutes before the photographer arrived. Phew!
Original photos will appear in the Albert & Logan News very soon with a STORY.
Watch out for them!
