Bookshops, competitions and festivals


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!
