Emerging Pigeons

A huge thank you to all those folk who braved the May morning drizzle yesterday, and came along to the Emerging Writers’ Festival at Melbourne Town Hall to listen to us discuss how Pigeons grew from an idea to a reality. We made some wonderful new friends, including some keen enough to get involved in helping us out – something we loudly applaud!

A great big thanks especially to new Pigeons comic creator Jen Breach for making this occasion possible. Jen is, among many other things, on the Advisory Committee for the Emerging Writers’ Festival, and she put a good word in for us. Thanks also to Bernard Caleo, our fearless interviewer. Bernard did a wonderful job guiding us through the task of describing the Pigeons journey, which was made no less exciting by the fact we were sitting in very ornate chairs, surrounded by gilt-framed mirrors.

Jackie Kerin, our favourite storyteller, and Pigeons author for the second year running, was kind enough to come along and has written some very kind words onĀ her blog.
