Much More Than Words Anthology Launch

What a successful exhibition was had over the weekend. We were well attended by local entrants and their families along with our local poet laureates.

The pictures tell the story. We all enjoyed hearing Bob Campbell read Deborah Cooke’s winning entry, Rekindling, and Monica reading her entry, Babe of the Vineyards.

Well done to the Mudgee Valley Writers team for their hard work and the Mudgee Readers Festival team for the impeccable organisation and presentations on the day.

Now we can take a few breaths until our next competition and book launch.

Our entries.

A picture is worth a thousand words

The first impression of this picture is ‘what well-behaved dogs.’ And for the split-second this picture was taken, indeed they were. However, immediately after they both liberated some baubles from the Christmas tree and proceeded to chase them around the house.

Much More Than Words photo/prose competition

The Much More Than Words competition is in full swing with quite a number of entries already received. Our members are very excited to begin the process of judging the colourful entries and keeping them at bay is proving to be a harder task than anticipated.

Our competition committee is hard at work, collaborating with the Mudgee Readers Festival organisers to plan the exhibition of photos, prose and poetry at the festivals Home-Grown event. With so much happening this year’s exhibition will be our best so far.

Don’t forget to get your entries in before June 17th. Entry forms can be downloaded at the competitions tab.
