This week’s listeners’ challenge is to inspired by clean, clear water, or at least Adelaide’s water, which is the same thing isn’t it?
Welcome to the Adelaide Plains Chapter and Verse monthly podcast Wordsmiths at Work. Recording from “the local”, our enthusiastic little band of wordsmiths discuss local poets and writers, share writing tips, and samples of our work. There is also a monthly listener’s challenge, to write a piece of verse or prose inspired by the photo of the month.
Submissions can be made to the web address provided and don’t forget to include “APCaV submission” in the email title.

Welcome to our second podcast. This month we had Carolyn Cordon, President of Adelaide Plains Poets and Writer in Residence at Poetic Justice Cafe, Alex Robertson, Treasurer, Marilyn Simpson and Janette Menhennet present.
We moved upstairs at the pub this week where it was much quieter, no crates of clanking bottles being unpacked in the background. We discussed what is on around and about Gawler, and there was plenty to talk about with Gawler Fringe happening and other Fringe events which members are involved with. We then discussed our favourite poems. Marilyn talked about Judith Wright and read several of her verses. We also discussed Australian poets Bruce Dawe and Banjo Patterson as well as touching on Shakespeare. Some quoting was indulged in. We then read our own works. Alex wrote about the recent announcement of the closure of the Coke bottling plant which inspired this week’s writing challenge, Water or more specifically, Adelaide’s Water.
