Maroondah Writers and Readers Festival – final meeting for 2008

By October 20, 2008One Comment

This morning I attended the final meeting of the Maroondah Writers and Readers Festival for 2008. The meeting discussed the feedback and community response to the inaugural Maroondah Writers and Readers Festival and to decide on the future of the event.

It was encouraging to see a strong community response to the festival demonstrating community support for the continuation of the event. As a result the committee decided that the festival should return in 2009 but will comprise of a series of regular events throughout the year. This will allow the festival to cover a diverse range of genres and writing styles and to encourage an ongoing community involvement in literature and writing.

Thank you to everyone that assisted in preparing for the Festival and to the many members of the community that attended the events.
