Welcome to Day Four!


Author - Joesy Knibbs

Joesy is a short story & poetry author who has come from the inner suburbs of Sydney. As a shy city girl, she met a country boy and moved to the north west country town of Gulgong. It was there she learned to manage a pig farm and observed the differences in people and the similarities in animals of all kinds.

Tragedy struck when her husband had a terrible accident which was the driving force for them to move, they settled into the Hawkesbury where she now lives with her family. When Joesy isn’t taking care of her family, she likes to write amazing children’s stories and poetry regarding women’s issues, and occasionally enjoys supporting her grandsons while watching them play rugby league.

Author - Millie Jackson

Millie Jackson writes novels and short stories that feature an honest exploration of contemporary issues. Whilst she often uses a humorous approach in her writing, she also delves into the difficult topics of addiction, domestic violence, eating disorders and spirituality.


She is a member of two writers’ groups at the Stanton Library as well as another at the Writers’ Centre in Rozelle. She has two short stories that will be published in an up and coming anthology in Spring 2020, featuring the works of the Stanton groups. The theme is ‘Standing Out or Fitting in.’
