Tomorrow will see the unveiling of the four new benchmarks on the Wellington Writers Walk - to be launched by His Excellency, Lt Gen, the Rt Hon Sir Jerry Mateparae and Lady Janine Mateparae down on the wharves around 6-30pm. I am a member of the committee that has been working toward this moment for the past 6 months and on Friday morning, when it is all over, we will all get our lives back (they've been bound by emails recently) and I will be able to start blogging with a vengeance! The new writers to be honoured are Jack Lasenby, Joy Cowley, Sir James McNeish and Elizabeth Knox.
Here is the Denis Glover plaque on the Walk- if you could read the words you would realise how appropriate the little red tug boat actually is!
