Social Media Award for One Farm Day Blog

Sophie Hansen

Sophie Hansen Writer in Residence for One Farm Day Blog

An outstanding project by the Central West Writers’ Centre, Central West Libraries,  Department of Primary Industries and the National Year of Reading team has been recognised with a 2013 NSW Public Libraries Marketing Award.

The One Farm Day blog was awarded Highly Commended in the Social Media Category of the Awards for the partnership allowing agricultural communities to tell their stories. Writer-in-residence Sophie Hansen interviewed farmers and uploaded their stories to a dedicated blog: http://onefarmday.blogspot.com.au/

It was part of a nationwide campaign by Australian libraries, library associations, writing centres and workplaces to improve literacy skills.  Local writer Sophie Hansen was appointed Writer-in-Residence to visit 10 rural sites throughout the Central West and bring to the community insightful stories of men and women involved in agriculture.  Congratulations to all involved in the project!
