SEPTEMBER, as most readers know, sees the culmination of each year’s Crocodile Prize national literary awards in Papua New Guinea.
It also sees the start of planning for the next awards in what is a year-round process.
With the 2014 awards event successfully concluded, members of the Crocodile Prize Organisation, COG, were asked if they wished to continue into 2015. But there was a twist.
Members wanting to stay with COG were asked to make a commitment to personal activity that would advance the interests of the Crocodile Prize.
Our next step was to invite entrepreneur, writer and charity boss Jimmy Drekore to head the organisation.
