RECEIVED from NPW Organisers
Hello event organisers and supporters,
I have updated the information, as you have sent it to me, and forwarded it to the NPW website. Can you please help distribute this information wherever appropriate. I will do as much publicity as I am able to, but it would be really good if you can do some of your own as well. Jayne, the director of NPW, would like jpegs of your guest poets or yourselves to put on the website please. Can you please send them to her either at jfk@nationalpoetryweek.com, or jfk@poetinresidence.com. If you can add anything else to the information about your event, so it follows the format of 'Title, Date, Time, Venue, Poets, Enquiries, Cost, Details', then please send that to Jayne as well. That is the format she is using on the website for every event.
Thank you all for supporting WA poets in taking part in National Poetry Week.
Cheers
Maureen Sexton
