Stories from the Clarence Valley, 2020 – Land/marks. This long-awaited, much anticipated, totally homegrown book features outstanding entries from the Long Way Home Writing Competition. Books are on sale at the Grafton Book Warehouse, South Grafton News and Gifts, and The Nook in Yamba. All of our published writers receive a free copy.
The best part about this project is seeing the writers (and their friends and family) finding their story in the book and seeing their name in print. Congratulations to you all! For those who are new to this project, it’s run 100% by volunteers. It’s a love project to encourage and celebrate storytelling in the Clarence Valley. Proceeds from the book pay for a new book to be published the following year. The book is selling fast so don’t miss out on getting a copy. Thanks for all your support!
In these times, writing is becoming more and more necessary. We need to observe, imagine, remember, connect. Our stories are warnings and celebrations. All our lives, what we remember are stories. In the future, that’s how people will know about us.
This small, local, independent writing project grows more writers each year. People who don’t know they can write, become writers. Writers of all ages become published authors. Together we’re putting the Clarence Valley on the writing map.
Best wishes everyone
