The Licuala Writers are nervously but excitedly revving up for their first public performances of work usually shared with other members of their writing group.
Original songs, pieces on motherhood, homework, stars, the moon, writing territories, the cosmos,and prologues to fantasy novels, have all been created in response to the Into Orbit theme.
Submissions from Netherlands, Africa, Brisbane, Melbourne, Innisfail as well as from local Indigenous writers and keen young writers in the area have come in.
Some of the work submitted will be on display in the library in the week following the reading, as well as on our website, http://licualaintoorbit.wordpress.com
Light refreshments will be available at the conclusion of the event.
