Central Victorian writer Mary Pomfret is about to launch her latest short story collection, Cleaning out the Closet. The themes of the collection are many and varied, but Mary says ‘essentially these stories are about love and its many aspects– the light and shade of it, the yin and yang, the sadness and the joy.’
‘Some of the stories in this collection are not new, but they have a special place in my heart.’
Born in Manchester, Mary grew up in Tasmania and has made Bendigo her home. Mary is a PhD student at La Trobe University, Bendigo and is working on a creative thesis under the supervision of Dr Sue Gillett who will be guest speaker at the launch. Bendigo writers will read from the collection.
My parents brought this lovely old trunk with them when they migrated from the UK in 1955. It was an antique then and has traveled many miles and has weathered many a storm. It is one of my most favorite things.
