Wollongong Writers Festival

Writer in Residence

unnamed-426x279In partnership with Wollongong Writers Festival (WWF), Cocoon Floatation has established a floating writer-in-residence program.

Each year, WWF selects a writer from their line up to receive two free floats in exchange for producing a piece of work to be donated back to WWF and Cocoon Floatation. The 2015 Wollongong Writers Festival Cocoon Floatation Writer-in-Residence was Candy Royalle.


Submerged in darkness

enveloping silence

imagining a womb

wet and warm

eyes close

breathing slows

heart beats loud

then soft enough that thoughts


in and out


rebirthing the light

from within the darkness
