ABC Open has a wonderful platform for Regional Victorians to write non-fiction pieces on a monthly topic and have their work published online.
Jane was a wonderful speaker, she gave us a great insight into the program and encouraged all of us with our own ideas. As always at these events, those willing to read shared some amazing and beautiful words from a writing prompt given. No-one is forced to read their writing at the BWC and criticism is not given, just positive reinforcement. Also supper and refreshments are supplied at each event. If you are lucky you will get one of Dawn’s scones [Dawn is Past President, current Treasurer and BWC constant].
I had a wonderful evening, receiving a lot of valuable new information and inspiration.
