Mudgee Valley Writers are hosting an exhibition of all entries received in the More Than Words Competition on Saturday 14th December from 2pm in Room 1 Club Mudgee. Everyone is welcome.

Ten Viewers Choice prizes will be awarded.

The afternoon will include entertainment from local Performance Poets and an Open Mike to showcase any visitors who may like to read a poem.
