Yesterday I attended a 'Writing Funny' workshop with
Bruno Bouchet, many other members of our writers group,
and writers from other areas. What a great day!
I haven't laughed so much for a long time.
We fractured fairy tales, we made up words,
defined them and then used them in sentences
and we had a ball. After such a sombre week,
with so many legends in Australia passing away
(RIP Steve Irwin, Colin Thiele and Peter Brock),
it was so good to laugh again.
I also saw the prototype of the Collage Poetry Diary.
It is cool and I am really proud of our work.
The diary features quotes from famous writers,
flash fiction (50-worders, one sentence stories),
haiku, 12 full colour collage poems,
and the inevitable Ransom Notes.
We will be doing a
limited edition print run
of 200 diaries.
The RRP will be $20 Aussie
