Vicky Adin at Takapuna Library, Monday 24th March 2014
Well, we're almost at the end of March and there's only one writer event left on our public speaking calendar up in Helensville on Wed 9th April. (At the library, 10.30 - 11.30am.)
It has been a very interesting exercise. We've had a variety of turnouts to our events and trialled a range of locations and time slots for reaching our audience - but the great thing is that however many attendees we've had, their response has always been positive, supportive, and interested, and we have made many useful new connections and allies.
Some of the pillars of the literary community are taking us more seriously now! We're here, we're growing, and we're doing good work.
Of course there is always more to be done to fly the flag of local publishing, and we'll be getting right on to that in time, but I'm sure others in the Mairangi Group will share my quiet feeling of relief that March is over, and now we can get back to writing.
I can't wait to get back to my story and see what happens next!
