Welcome to your October newsletter.

It's the middle of spring, but who can say, with the weather the way it is some days!

By the time you read this, you will have known who the Brownlow Medal winner is and which team won the 2019 AFL Premiership; although NRL fans, you have a few more scrums and tackles before you know who your premiers are.

Of course, there are two other favourite festivals celebrated in October of very different ilks: Australia's Oktoberfest and the Seniors Festival; and this year I get to be one of the faces for the latter https://www.cotavic.org.au/our-programs/victorian-seniors-festival/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI5dfg3f3v5AIVwhuPCh3x2AdsEAAYASAAEgK4aPD_BwE. Check out the interesting celebrations programs for each of the festivals.

The literary festivals are over but Christmas decorations are in the shops to set our minds athinking that soon it will be holidays and festive celebrations and family get-togethers and time for putting our feet up for some well-deserved rest from editor's block.

Don't forget to catch up on some of the news in this month's newsletter, like the Melbourne Writers Festival review of MWF19, and what's happening with the Ambassador Program. We are also pleased to announce our new Student Advisors, and we are seeking your input to our events calendar while providing you with exciting new courses to attend. All in all, it is a busy space we are in!

Have a great October ... stay away from the colds and hay fever ... and save some sweets for "trick or treat" at Halloween!
