President Mary Farr opened the meeting at 9.40 and we began with a grammar exercise.

Then our prospective members were introduced and told us a little about themselves.

The set homework was read and homework for the October meeting is ‘Bananas’.

The Competition Coordinator, Wendy Laing, read the comments and placings made by the judge, Sally Odgers, for our Rose Frankcombe Short Story Award 2020. The President read the winning and second-placed stories to the group.

For a written exercise we had to think of something in our loungerooms and write a short story up to 500 words about it.

Monika Di Paolo won the raffle and will bring another raffle to the next meeting.

With fifteen minutes to spare, we took it in turns to speak about what we had been doing writing-wise during the past month.

The meeting closed at 12 noon.

The AGM will be held on Monday, 5th October in the Launceston Library, commencing at 10 am. Followed by a general meeting.

Hello Trish and Claire, my name is Catherine and I am also keen to meet other women in the Hobart area who write. Have you organized any times to get together?

Hi, Claire. No SWWT meetings in Hobart but women writers do meet regularly. Look up Robyn Mathison on our committee list and contact her for more info... Cheers
