The Point is hitting the road at the end of March to visit the regional NSW centres of Goulburn and Wagga Wagga as part of our commitment to the arts.
On Saturday, 1 April Jacquelene Pearson will be hosting a workshop at Goulburn Mulwaree Library from 10am to 2pm.
The workshop is called WORDS CAN CHANGE THE WORLD. It will focus on Jacquelene’s journey as a public interest journalist and a poet!
Topics will include how to be a good citizen journalist, the future of community news and how you can contribute.
“We will also workshop some poetry and have LOADS OF FUN,” she said.
