Get blogging – farm writing workshops @ the Australian National Field Days

Have you ever wanted to learn more about blogging or even to just get some helpful tips about writing your own farming story?

You can call into the Writing Workshop at the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) stand at this year’s Australian National Field Days (ANFD) for the chance to add your farm story to the One Farm Day Blog.

This new initiative involves Central West Libraries and DPI working together to highlight books, reading, literacy and the National Year of Reading as well as the Australian Year of the Farmer with a Writer-in-Residence program.

Sophie Hensen from Orange has been appointed local Writer-in-Residence.

She will visit 10 rural sites throughout the Central West and bring to the community insightful stories of men and women involved in agriculture. The stories are to be show-cased on the blog website One Farm Day: Stories from behind the farm gate with the community invited to share their stories.

Other highlights at this year’s DPI display include the Rural Support Worker Men’s Pit Stop Health Check, a presentation of Agriculture and Natural Resource Management by the Central West and Lachlan Catchment Management Authorities with DPI agronomists, recreational fishing advice, Soil Conservation Service and Rural Assistance Authority information, sheep and wool talks and diagnostic testing services.
