Newcastle Writer’s Festival & The Press Book House

I’m so happy that the home of Starving in a Garrett was the host venue for two events for the festival. The first was on Friday evening as a lead up to the festival proper – the double launch of Judy Johnson’s Exhibit and Jean Kent’s The Language of Light. Both poetry collections are published by Flying Island Books.

On Saturday morning I was very lucky to be part of an Intimate Reading with Anthony Lawrence. Our group sat on the couches (where I usually write on Saturday mornings) and listened to Anthony read his poetry and several poems from Paul Muldoon and Geoffrey Hill. We were very spoilt having Anthony read for over an hour. Bliss! I can’t wait to read Signal Flare! Novocastrians are very lucky to have not just the Newcastle Writer’s Festival but this gorgeous little book shop and cafe as well!

Author, booklover, bookcrosser and firm believer in synchronicity. There is no such thing as coincidence! I am currently working on a trilogy set in Sydney and Paris during the 1920s, along with poems, flash and short stories.
