This is the bedtime story I read as part of the Society of Women Writers Victoria online festival ‘For the Love of Writing. The story,’Wrinkles’, was written by Errol Broome, a much-loved and respected long-time member of the society.
The live launch of the SWWVic ‘For the Love of Writing’ festival has had to be cancelled at the last minute because of Victoria’s Covid lockdown. Events for the day have been switched to Zoom – unfortunately, there’s no way the celebration cake I made for the launch can be cut and consumed online! It’s now in my freezer, awaiting the chance to be enjoyed at a later date.
The 50th anniversary year of the Society of Women Writers Victoria is being marked by a week-long writers’ festival, beginning on Valentine’s Day.
I’m involved in this festival – I’m introducing a poet, hosting a discussion panel on writing for theatre, presenting a session on sonnets, and reading a bedtime story for children.
Details of the full programme can be found on the society’s website, here
