Aussie & UK writers fire up the future

Writers from my Writing to Buoy Us workshops July/Aug 2020 read alongside special guest, the incredible Malika Booker on the theme of Re-invent the Future.  Wonderful honest, emotional, intelligent and talented writing – this was a reading to remember for a long time to come. Malika set the screen on fire and wow-ed us all.  (Special hello to John who couldn’t be there; Adam read John’s piece for John’s mum Margaret. Our thoughts were with you.) Here’s some comments and pics.

The reading of the year!  

Thank you – that was such a wonderful event to be a part of.

Mesmerising. I feel very lucky to have been here tonight.

Great to see everyone & what super super work.     A spectacular night of poetry!

Powerful words, power readings.     Astonishing, moving readings.

I was so grateful for the poetry readings this evening: the opportunity to be a listener and the richness of this experience.
