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
