Speaker: 

SWWV member, Bee Williamson, will tell us about her experience as a Café Poet.

Bee says ‘I started as a Café Poet in July 2010, at the lush and gorgeous Pheast 48, Wattletree Road, Armadale, (Vic). It had huge rose paintings, chandeliers and old masters on the ceiling. It was as warm and cosy as one could wish on a cold, rainy grey morning. Yet in summer its beautiful leafy courtyard with a large native pepper tree was there for all to enjoy.

The cafe residency with no Internet access meant no distracting, time-wasting e-mail, Facebook or web searching. The time spent away from home and its inevitable distractions – washing, dishes, phone calls, Internet – was such a huge blessing and meant I could focus completely on writing! Those hours, uninterrupted, every Tuesday morning meant I finished my book over six months.’
