Wombat Hollow Artisans’ Market {5th & 6th Nov 2016}

Do you guys remember a few years ago we worked really hard on a local festival in our village The Burrawang DnA Festival? Well for anyone looking for something to do this weekend (locals and of course anyone up for a beautiful drive to the countryside 90 mins south of Sydney or Canberra) I’ve got something pretty cool to share with you!

And I got so excited when I saw the creative writing workshop with the wonderful Lucy Palmer that I immediately booked it in and then realised I am meant to be in Sydney at the same time!

So! How about I give away that ticket to some lucky BabyMac reader? Surely someone would not want to miss this…it’s being held on Saturday 5th November at Wombat Hollow at 2pm until 3.30pm.

Author of A Bird on My Shoulder, Lucy Palmer, will be running a 90-minute workshop on:

“The perils and joys of creative writing.”

Using the skills and techniques she has gathered in her 30-year career, Lucy will share all the techniques you need to kickstart the creative process and keep it humming. Whether it’s a new project, a stalled manuscript or simply an unspoken desire to write, this workshop will delight and inform you, leaving you inspired and brimming with new ideas. 

Bring along your ideas, your journal or writing pad and pens.

If you’d like to win that spot (my spot DER!) just leave me a comment below and be able to make your own way to Wombat Hollow this coming Saturday 5th November. I’d hate to see it go to waste and I’d love to give it someone!
