A CONFESSION TO “SCRIBBLERS ANONYMOUS”
A lover of music and language Ermyntrude Blenkinnsop has been producing Dreadful Doggerel (NOT poetry) for twenty years. Deciding to do something with her output she gathered together all the backs of envelopes into an “oeuvre” and offered it to Fremantle Arts Press. Unsurprisingly, it was turned down, but coinciding with this stage of her addiction she picked up a flyer in her local library for the Society of Women Writers and found there a warm-hearted group of supportive women.
Through this she went to the champagne launch of “Indigo” (and the food was good too) and discovered that every second person in Perth is writing something! EB has also been brave (and foolish?) enough to read aloud at Poet’s Corner in the Alexander Library, and to submit to one or two publications mentioned in the excellent SWW newsletter. She has thus been “published” in cyberspace (Australian Reader.com) and is having a lot of fun in her old age.
