I got home this evening after a detour to Perth to meet up with my mother (who doesn’t look or act her 89 years, I’m glad to say).
Right now I’m really too tired to write a measured reflection on this year’s StAnza festival, so I’ll come back to it later. But I want to thank the participants for the quality of the readings, performances, workshops, discussions and other events. And Brian Johnstone, Eleanor Livingstone, and the many many wonderful helpers who made it such an outstanding success. From launch to finale – simply the best.
