As many of you know, I had the privilege of traveling to three locations in this vast state of ours – Roma, Townsville & Cairns – as part of Arts Queensland’s consultation process for the new writing strategy. Since my travels, I have been thinking big about the future of writing; imagining new ways for writers to connect and exploring opportunities for writers that are currently going untapped.
My final blog post as part of the engagement, Thinking Forward, Thinking Big has just been published on the AQBlog and I encourage anyone who is interested in the development of writing and the future funding of writing in this state (and nationally) to click on over for a read. And what’s more important, is that we as writers continue the dialogue. So don’t be afraid to make a comment… if we don’t speak, we will not be heard.
