WooHoo! Logan Writers Week!

WooHoo! Its official … Logan Writers Week will go ahead between the 11th to 16th of October at Logan City Libraries and Angus and Robertson Hyperdome Bookstore.
It’ll be a week long celebration of the amazing literary talent in Logan City.

In March, I created Logan City Writers collective and dreamed I could organise Logan Writers Week, a community based writers festival set in the burbs of Brisbane, Australia.

Organising Logan Writers Week has taken me on one helluva learning curve on
how to merge creative arts with bureaucracy and business. Despite self-doubt, rejections, setbacks and bungles, I’ve pulled it off.

The reality … its now happening in 5 weeks time!
As event coordinator, I’ve selected talented Writers, organised and confirmed the program utilizing the infrastructure of the Logan Libraries Network ─ their venues, staff and publicity machine.

Key-note speaker Doctor David Reiter, Publisher at IP ( Interactive Publications) will present Future of the Book/ New Media for Publishing at Logan North Library
on Tuesday 12th October 6-7.45 pm. Please book  3412 4140 after 15th September.

Logan Writers Expo …The Grand Finale of Logan Writers Week will culminate at Logan North Library on Saturday 16th 9am-12 . Please book  3412 4140 after 15th September.

During that week we’ll showcase the literary talent of …
Ged Maybury, Karen Collum, Annette Henderson, Kev Webb and Anthony Puttee, Robin Adolphs, Jodi Cleghorn, Annie Evett, Dawn Alice, Maggie Anderson,  Sandra Makaresz, Tony Lourenson, Jo Whitfield, Myles Pellowe, Cats Thompson and Sharon Norris … Plus MORE Writers at the EXPO.

Via Author Talks, Writing Workshops, How to get Published Panel, a Childrens Writer Panel and MORE.

The full FREE program will be announced soon.

Please support Logan Writers Week by …

•    Joining LOGAN WRITERS WEEK Fan page on Facebook … launching tomorrow.
•    Watching out for program announcements and accepting my invitations.
•    Booking each event at the Library where the event is held.

I urge you to highlight the 11th to 16th October in your diaries and calendars.
