2006: Year in Review: November

November was the month we were all anticipating and working towards: the launch of our RANSOM NOTES COLLAGE POETRY DIARY for 2007.

The launch was held at the Bowraville Theatre on Saturday 18th November, and featured a recital by the Bowraville Singers, and a performance of Carrolline Rhode's one act play Making Allowances.

The collation of the diary proved to be more difficult than anticipated and took three days work, with every member of the group pitching in.

But finally we had a product we were all proud of: a 2007 Diary featuring pieces from almost every member of the group including 12 full colour collage poems, ransom notes, haiku, flash fiction, 'Pass the Story' excercises and quotations about writing from authors.

The diary was launched by Jennifer Gordon, current president and Collage Poetry Queen, who was the person who introduced the group to the collage poetry concept.

Another successful collaborative project by the Nambucca Valley Writers Group.
