Yesterday Liz Pulford, on the left, called in to the University Bookshop to collect her book voucher. Liz won the UBS best unplaced Dunedin poem in our 2015 competition. I hadn’t met Liz before so I arranged to call in at the same time, snap a photo of Liz receiving the voucher, and then tarry for a chat. We spent a very pleasant 30 minutes getting to know each other in the warmth of UBS and we’re planning to catch up again soon.
I get to meet so many interesting people through this PitWR project. I consider myself extremely lucky.
On my way back to the car I spied a warmly dressed chap pasting posters advertising the Dunedin Writers and Readers Festival. So I whipped out my camera and with his “ok” snapped his brush strokes for you!
