Meet the Locals
Castlemaine. It’s cold as hell and hot as it too. You need to spend a lot of time indoors. But maybe that’s why there are so many creative people here.
It’s also a wonderful community that embraces and supports the arts.
I interview local writers and artists about their practice, and what drew them to live in the area.
- Lisa D’Onofrio, director of the Castlemaine Children’s Literature Festival
- Simmone Howell, award-winning author of Girl Defective
- Jon Bauer, author of award-winning novel Rocks in the Belly
- Adam Ford, novelist, poet, coordinator of local writing events and creator of twitter-prose
