Saturday’s workshops at the Mockingbird cafe had few takers but turned out to be interesting for many reasons. The venue has great potential, with both easy sofas and tables for meals. To be surrounded by art and artifacts makes for a sympathetic ambiance and the meals, once they arrived, were beautifully presented and tasty.
Wendy’s workshop on memories produced some thoughtful work from a number of people and all our books were on display and for sale. By the time lunch was over we had fewer customers but I did a little workshop on designing a bookmark that might encourage our group to think more about marketing.
We are doing readings at the WOW festival at the end of May and planning a joint book launch in June. More information will be forthcoming when we know the venue.
