Convivial Tasmanian Launch

On the 6th of November fellow editor Rachael Bailey and I were welcomed at the Hobart National Museum and Art Gallery by members of the Tasmanian Writers Centre, for the launch of Women's Work (Pax Press) to an audience of about 60 people. Dr Terry Whitebeach gave an insightful and amazingly detailed launch talk and eight Tasmanian poets read their own work after which much cake and champagne were enjoyed. We scored the social pages of The Mercury newspaper and an early morning interview with  ABC radio, all engineered by the energetic poet, Gina Mercer. We were ably supported by Hobart bookshop's presence on the night with plenty of copies. Not only that, staying at the gorgeous Art Hotel, Rachael shared a breakfast table briefly with Australian legend, cricketer Glen McGrath.
