SkyWriters anthology launch

An inspiring book of prose and poetry by diverse Australian writers responding to the big sky and wide landscapes of our ‘Inland Astro-Trail’ will be launched at Artstate Tamworth.

Dark Sky Dreamings: an Inland Skywriters Anthology, features skystories by 49 very diverse Australian writers.

The many voices of Dark Sky Dreamings speak to the canopy of stars that web our memories, carbon cells and spirit, reminding us that we share the same wide sky. – Tamryn Bennett, Artistic Director, Red Room Poetry

Tamworth launch: Artstate fringe festival
