A Bothwell storytelling event featuring Kim Nielsen-Creeley, Marilyn Arnold, Tim Hurburgh and Mallika Naguran.
Friday 1 December at the BoHo (Bothwell Hotel) from 3-6 pm.
Listen to stories and poems on highland life and love, over wine, cheese and crackers.
Kim Nielsen-Creeley is a Launceston-based writer and poet. She has released a chap book titled Roughly, and is ready to submit a full length poetry book. Kim is active in the local poetry scene as presenter and emcee. She has been interviewed and read on local and ABC radio. She has assisted to create poetry events in the local poetry scene, and also blogs on-line.
Marilyn Arnold, also from Launceston, has two books of poetry: Capture, written with Carol Easton, and Lies, Lovers and Other Constructions. An award-winning poet, Marilyn is the inaugural president of the Tasmanian Branch of the Society of Women Writers and a committee member of the Tasmanian Poetry Festival. She runs regular poetry open mic and workshop sessions. Marilyn has written about nature in the central highlands, having lived in Hamilton in her previous life!
Tim Hurburgh is an architect, writer and poet who grew up on the Derwent River north of Hobart. The Ouse resident has released his first book of poetry, Disruptions: Tasmania in Poetry. Tim’s second book, Tall Poplars: Tales of Tasmania’s fabled Derwent Valley is a collection of short stories. When not penning poems or weaving tales, Tim sends ping-pong balls whizzing past hot ears in the disused district school uphill.
Mallika Naguran is a short story and children’s stories writer who will soon be published as a novelist. Her debut story collection, She Never Looks Quite Back, has been shortlisted for a book award. She is the founder of Pub to Park Storytelling, which features published authors, poets and new voices live across Tasmania. The city-turned-country girl is now always woken up too early by eager roosters in Ouse.
Cheese platter $10 per head. Wine/whiskey/tea/coffee extra.
