At Season of Inspiration we are putting together a Memosaic of our writers’ work.
A collection of inspired pieces from our SOI writers past and present to be published electronically.
Helen and I are assisting our SOI writers’ to revise, edit and polish their stories and poems for our Memosaic.
Helen Whitehead is designing the visual interface for the web, from ideas put forward and discussed by our Season of Inspiration writers.
I’m very excited about this project and am looking forward to launching our Season of Inspiration Memosaic in September.
I’ve been involved in similar projects before and contributed to the
trAce Decade Quilt.
For those who are new to this type of New Media collaboration –– other excellent examples include:
What people see out of their window at Noon – Contributions from around the globe.

In Short: Fiction. Weekend Spectrum: Books.
“… a kind of two-nation project that seems timely … Nagarkar’s brilliant tale of a man out to murder Rushdie being immediately followed, to devastating effect, by Rushdie’s contribution. Other standout pieces are by David Malouf, Rosie Scott, Denise Leith and Neelum Saran Gour.”

Age, The (Melbourne, Australia)
“Three big names — Salman Rushdie, David Malouf and Thomas Keneally — are deservedly here by virtue of republished material, but there are plenty of stories from lesser-known writers from both India and Australia, many of which have been written specially for this book… Preceding Salman Rushdie’s contribution is Kiran Nagarkar’s darkly amusing In Search of Essar about a man determined to carry out the fatwa on Rushdie.”
