Mark Greenwood, Elaine Forrestal and Dianne Wolfer

It was great to meet and chat to Rama Ramachandran, the executive director of the National Book Development Council of Singapore. Lots of ideas were tossed around and the possibility of attending the forthcoming Conference of the NBDCS was discussed.

Closer ties with the writing and illustrating community in Singapore have been developing steadily with Ken Spillman and Dianne Wolfer paving the way. There are certainly opportunities opening up in Singapore, Hong Kong and even India. Of course Mark Greenwood and Frane Lessac, who have become real globe-trotters, are also waving the flag for Australian writers and illustrators. Well done, guys.
