Shouting from the rooftops - member successes

Congratulations to four WCBA members on their recent launches and awards.


Juliet McIver has launched her first book at the Children's Bookshop - Marmaduke Duck and the Marmalade Jam. The event was a treat. She even cooked up 100 pots of yummy home-made marmalade to give away there.
See photos from the event here.

Victoria Jones is publishing her own children's books and finding an enthusiastic market for them. She launched her second book last month. Visit her website here.


Pippa Werry is shortlisted in the 2010 Royal Society of New Zealand Manhire Prize for Creative Science Writing. Read her piece and those of other finalists here.

Holly Gooch is one of 42 runners up from 227 entries in the the 2010 Eat Your Words Cafe Poetry Competition. More about the competition here.
