Blue Fringe Arts

Posted by on May 15, 2014 in Events | No Comments

Last night (14 May) I attended the 2014 Blue Fringe Arts Short Story and Poetry Awards, as the judge of the short story competition. Blue Fringe Arts celebrates the creativity of people living with or having experienced mental illness, and is run by a committee of organisations based in the Blue Mountains and Lithgow regions of New South Wales. I was honoured to be appointed a judge, along with Elizabeth Lhuende – a fellow Blue Mountains author and founder of the Australian Women’s Writers Challenge. The event was very moving, the stories were inspirational, and I congratulate ALL the participants – especially the winners!
