WENDY'S NEWSY NEWS FOR NOVEMBER

Hello everyone,

We will be holding our end of year CHRISTMAS LUNCH on Monday, 3rd December.  It will be in the LINKS Restaurant at the Country Club Casino in Launceston.

We have booked a table for 12 noon. The cost is $25.50 for the lunchtime buffet.

Ros Sydes is taking the bookings. Her mobile number is 0418 365 253, text is best.

Or you can email her at rsy59995@bigpond.net.au

Please book before the 29th of November. 

Please bring a Secret Santa of no more than $7.

 


At our general meeting on the morning of the 3rd December, we have a guest speaker from 10.30 am to 11.30 a.m.

Dawn Meredith grew up in England, Australia and Norway. She is a teacher, author and artist and has been working with children and their families for over 20 years. She now lives with her family near Ulverstone. Dawn's first two books were published in 2000. Since then she has been published in almost every genre. Her ninth book was released in 2017. Her work includes fiction and non-fiction books, short stories, short non-fiction pieces and poetry. Dawn was awarded a May Gibbs Fellowship 2010 and 2011 to complete the first draft her debut young adult fantasy novel FLIGHT. In 2016 her debut adult novel LETTERS FROM THE DEAD won the SCBWI Andrea Pinkney writer award before it was published.


 

This meeting will be held in Room 1, Level 2 of the Launceston Library, commencing at 10.00 am.  At 11.30 we leave for our Christmas lunch at Links. It would be great if as many members as possible could come to the meeting to hear our guest speaker and then join us for lunch.


 

I would still love to receive some articles, short stories and poems for the December/January Stylus.  They do not necessarily have to be on the theme of ‘A Hidden Kindness’.


 

There is still time to enter the Robyn Mathison Poetry Prize as it does not finish until the 30th November.  (Click on here and scroll down home page for details).


 

If you have not as yet renewed your $25 membership, our Membership Officer Ros Sydes can give you our bank details for direct deposits.  Email her at rsy5995@bigpond.com for further details regarding payments.

Happy writing and Merry Christmas from Secretary Wendy.

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
