The long weekend was rainy, after that, a new week started. The Blake Poetry Prize 2012 is progressing well, and we got around 500 entries now. Really is a big fight. In these days, I got myself more familiar with the computer softwares that are very useful. It’s good to have a chance like this to learn because there are always some nice people here you can ask. I am not very good at computer or softwares, so that’s very important to have someone for me to seek help of. And luckily, they are all willing to teach.
Newswrite is the bimonthly magazine for NSWWC’s members. I found them are interesting while reading. And as I have a chance to work with some previous issues, I found that the design changed a lot as well as the content. The magazine is become better and better. Actually, some cover designs of the previous Newswrites is quite funny. Those magazine covers are now on the facebook page, you can have a look easily now.
The process of the Blake Poetry Prize’s entries finally finished, their next stop will be the judges’ hands. Hope to hear the good news soon. Also the work of promotion is done too, there are over 400 envelopes at all. They will leave NSWWC soon and go for their mission, to promote the centre. After finished all these tasks, another new start is about to begin.
To have a nice chance, I walked around the building of NSWWC today. Actually, the building is the Gary Owen House, which was a private house in the past. Listen to the history is very interesting and I think it’s difficult to imagine there were ballroom and dinning room in there. I also heard that there would be many purple flowers in front of the house in summer and people will book the venue for wedding. I really hope I can see that beautiful picture.
