Our writer’s group has embarked on an exciting new project. We’ve received funding from our local shire to put together a book of community writings on the theme of ‘Moving On’.

So far, we’ve had heaps of fabulous short stories and poems submitted on a fantastic range of topics including growing old, surviving a bush fire, marriage breakdowns, cancer, travelling on trains, surviving accidents, living with autism, mental illness, physical illness, loss of a family member, abuse and even the supernatural.

It’s so exciting to be working with talented writers who have never published before, and members of our local community who simply have a great story to tell.

Next job – to select what goes in our book. We’re trying to include as many works as possible. That’s going to be a tough one.

Will keep you posted on where to from here.
