In line with the My Walk to Equality objective of active citizen participation (via literature) in addressing and working towards PNG achieving its Sustainable Development Goals, I will be attending the Pacific Health Governance: Knowledge Translation for SDGs in Brisbane, on 15-16 February.

I'll be sharing the information and network contacts with the MWTE writers, several of whom work in the areas in which research directions for the Pacific will be discussed.

A big thanks to Phil Fitzpatrick for organising a batch of MWTE paperbacks for networking purposes at the workshop. Very pleased to see that MWTE royalties continue to facilitate the distribution of our anthology.

Thank you, Gary and John.

John - I think with your current book project '8 Million Possibilities', this would be a fantastic year for a national literary gathering.

With a total of 8 PNG writers presenting at 2 Qld literary festivals across 2 years, I think it's time PNG brought the experience to the nation's readers, established and aspiring writers. .

I'll add too that there's been an incredible amount of MWTE support from our Pacific neighbours Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Fiji, New Zealand etc so including them in some way too would be excellent.

Inspiring to read this!

Let's keep at.

Rashmii, keep up the good work. There will always be some difficulties, but keep going.

Thanks to an invitation by Charlie Lynn, I had the pleasure of spending MWTE's one year anniversary, meeting with Adventure Kokoda team members Tracie Watson and Chad Sherrin. I was inspired by their health, education and leadership initiatives run through their community development arm, Network Kokoda. It was great to share the work of MWTE project made possible through PNG Attitude and Pukpuk Publications. Looking forward to a potential near-future collaboration with the team and their field work in places including Sogeri and Ioarwari.
