The Far South Wilderness - Tasmania

Being Author in Residence at the Camp was a great experience for me.
My previous expeiences as an author had been limited to talks at clubs and libraries. And mainly to adult audience.
I had never been involved with an extended three day event and had not been involved with school students.
Having accepted the challenge and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, I will be looking at other similar opportunities.
I guess you are never too old to try something new!

Hi Catherine,

Thank you for your postings.
I’ve only just got around to the computer at 4.00pm as I have been painting the kitchen today.
Tonight I’m off to a writers’ meeting in Launceston.
I don’t know any local writers so it might be an opportunity to meet a few.

I had an email from the Camp organiser, saying that the feedback was good and that everyone enjoyed the camp and benefitted from it.
I certainly enjoyed it and would like to do some more similar things.

When I left the camp I headed up to Hobart and spent the next morning looking around the sity and visiting the wharf and Maritime Museum.
I must come back to visit Hobart again before too long.

I hope that eventually all the stories that were written at the camp are published in an anthology.
That would make a good memory of the Far South Wilderness.

Hi Again Catherine,
I took your second message off the board as it had your email address on and I didn't know if you wanted it shown to everyone on the WWW.
