Celebrate@thelark PLUS exciting new workshops for writers



It's been a big year for Tasmanian writing. History has been made, awards have been won - and we seem to keep discovering more and more talent emerging from our wee island.

So clearly you've all been busy writing 2014 away - and quite franky, it's time to celebrate. Join us at the Lark Distillery for our end-of-year, um, lark, for an evening of festive cheer. We'll have readings from some of Tasmania's finest writers (including a surprise or two), raffles, and pressies from the Hobart Book Shop. It's sure to be a cranker. But please do RSVP so we know you're coming....

WHEN: Wednesday December 10, 6-8pm

WHERE: The Lark Distillery, 14 Davey Street, Hobart

RSVP: by December 6 to admin@tasmanianwriters.org
