After the Kickstarter: Progress Report 1

Sorry I haven’t been able to keep up the reblogs in this space, have been busy working on a book!

A big thank you to all those who supported Magic Fish Dreaming.

Since the kickstarter finished, Helene presented June and the team with a story board of all the illustrations in pencil outline, that she was proposing for the book. After some fruitful and constructive consultation this was approved for the go ahead.

The Ultimate Faraway Tree

Editors’ Kickstarter Project.   Would love it if you come and check out Magic Fish Dreaming.

A project highlighting family, nature, discovery and poetry. Will be featuring beautiful art work reflecting the multicultural tapesty of Far North Queensland’s community.

This tree is just one of many inspirations for the poetry of Magic Fish Dreaming. It is the ultimate faraway tree of Far North Queensland, although it is not one you are allowed to climb on – for that you have to find other trees (of which there are plenty that are almost as magical).

For more information visit: Curtain Fig Tree

Stay tuned for more poetry inspirations. I look forward to seeing what magical illustrations Helene will do for the rest of the book. Can you imagine them too?
