YES, I’ve plunged into the Deep End.
I’m organizing a writers festival … Logan Writers Week between the the 10th and 16th of October, in partnership with Logan City Libraries.
Guest Speakers, Workshops, book launches, book signings, writer’s panels, author talks, and Meet your Local Writer Day are just a few of the events being considered. The exact program will be worked out soon.
Our key-note speaker Doctor David Reiter of IP Publishing is booked. He will present Future of the Book/ New Media for Publishing at the Logan North Library on Tuesday 12th October 6-8 pm … All Events are FREE.
I’m receiving wide support for Logan Writers Week from state and local government, local businesses and Arts organizations.
Supporters and or/Partners in this project include the Society of Women Writers, Queensland Writers Centre, State Politician Barbara Stone MP, Mayor of Logan, Pam Parker, Logan City Libraries, their Library programmer Janet Poole, local businesses such as Angus and Robertson bookstore … and the 50+ members of Logan City Writers collective.
When was Logan Writers Week conceived?
It all started with a chance meeting with the Mayor of Logan City two months ago and sharing my ideas on how to Raise the Profile of Logan City Writers.
Within a week, Logan City Writers collective was born.
Then I thought Why Not? …
Why not organize a Writers Festival?
With that inspiration in mind, I plunged in fully clothed, believing anything is do-able and that I could swim the distance.
Thank you to all those supporting Logan Writers Week.
Without you, I’d surely go under.
