Barkly Muse: Leni Shilton

Creative writing tutor extraordinaire Leni Shilton came up from Alice Springs twice in 2011. She not only mentored writers in furthering their skills but was instrumental in helping everyone polish up their work before the official launch of the Barkly Writers Ink Blog on Sunday, 28 August. Leni, who inspired many Indigenous students at the Batchelor Institute (Alice Springs Campus) before moving on to do a PhD, has been working closely with local writers since the inception of Barkly Writers Ink in July 210.  For her birdseye view on the local writing scene, check out her post, the Flavour of Writing  in Tennant Creek.
