Well the inaugural Tropical Writers Festival went off without a hitch on the weekend. Hundreds of people attended from throughout North Queensland to sit in on the various panels, workshops and events that were held over the 2 days. The guest of honor was fiction writer – Nick Earls. He provided a number of entertaining presentations and a workshop that was sold out. Writers of all genres attended the festival, some professional, some experienced, some just starting out.
It was stimulating on every level and an absolute credit to the Tropical Writers Group who put a huge amount of hard work into making it such a professional event.
I am sure that this will become a regular feature on our literary calendar. As this first festival was so successful I can only imagine how it will grow in coming years.
Many thanks to everyone who attended and to the Tropical Writers Group for all of the hard work you have done to make the festival a wonderful two day experience.
