I am very excited to head off in the morning to this festival. Writers are coming from far and wide to touch base with Ohakune readers. It seems like no other festival with children doing a horse ride with Stacy Gregg, a waterfall walk, a bunch of writers doing the crossing on Monday (ah if only!), festival lecture by Elizabeth Knox, truck loads of poets and fiction writers, non fiction as well. Martin Edmond for a start.
Some writers are going as readers.
Not too late to plan a weekend by the mountain!
Loads of hard work by the organisers getting a festival off the ground for the first time.
So thanks! So good to see such a bustle of literary activity outside the main centres and universities.
