Yesterday, I received a surprising call from Logan City Council.
“We’ve selected you to be a ‘Featured Artist’ at the RADF showcase on the 31st July at Logan Art Gallery.”
I fell into my chair. Unbelievable!
Chelsi explained … “The RADF Showcase is a Celebration of Logan creative artists who received a Regional Arts Development Fund Grant. These artists produced a successful project, which cultivated their skills and benefited the community.”
In 2009, a RADF grant sponsored me to complete a six-month writing course, Year of the Edit, at the Queensland Writers Centre. I developed two manuscripts, Me and Her: a Memoir of Madness and Sayonara to their full potential.
I’m waiting to hear ‘News’ about these two manuscripts.
In March 2010, a series of unexpected events evolved …
After “bumping” into Logan Mayor, Pam Parker I promised I’d give back to the community with a free Writing Workshop and offered my views in raising the profile of Logan Writers.
Soon after, I formed Logan City Writers collective and organised Logan Writers Week for October.
The RADF Showcase will be an amazing informative Event.
Queensland Writers Centre will be there to present information about their Writing Courses and grants.
RADF officers will answer specific questions.
Anyone contemplating applying for a RADF Grant should attend.
Now I have seven weeks to get organised …
I need to submit “Action” photos and visuals for a slide presentation for the event and also for a Council Publication … I get one whole page to strut my stuff in print.
So many fabulous opportunities!
On the 31st July between 2-4 pm, they’re offering me a whole table to display my work at this Expo, with me standing behind it, answering questions.
Now got to figure out what to display on that big ol’ table.
