Sunday Salon: Castlemaine Published Writers

Our first Sunday Salon (10 March) was a great success with local writers re-launching their book/s in the Castlemaine Word Mine Room. It was a delight to hear eight writers read and promote their book/s, share details of their publishing experience, followed by literary conversations over drinks and nibbles.
