The Poetry of Woodbridge: Heritage Conversation

Thank you to the wonderful people who braved the drizzle and came to the heritage talk: The Poetry of Woodbridge hosted by The National Trust of Western Australia yesterday. Big thanks to Milly, Cynthia, and Elissa for their fine organisation and to Julian for his convivial discussion and questions. It was unfortunate that Nandi was unable to make it but hopefully there will be an opportunity for her to share her experiences and read her poems in the future. This was such a pleasant and memorable experience for me on my poetry journey, a culmination of everything I have done so far. I am very grateful for the Inspire Residency as it has advanced my career in so many ways. I believe the residencies will be advertised again shortly, so writers keep your eyes open for this and I encourage you to apply. Thanks Matt for these pics:)
