REPORT ON GENERAL MEETING HELD ON MONDAY, 2nd March 2020

The President opened the meeting at 10.15 am.

Present were Mary Farr, Wendy Laing, Ros Sydes, Katharine Marshall, Kathy Duff, Liz Russell-Arnot.

Apologies were received from Rose Frankcombe, Carolyn Wyrsch, Valerie Kennedy, Yvonne Gluyas, Janet Berry.

We began the meeting with a short exercise on using conjunctions before reading our homework ‘eco-anxiety’ as either short stories or poetry. Everyone had a different and interesting take on the subject.

The homework for the April meeting is to write a poem in either free verse, blank verse or an allegory.

Wendy Laing had researched information on book distributors which led to a lively discussion on the part they played for an author.

We talked about the art of writing monologues and decided to include an article about monologue essays in the next Stylus.

The raffle was won by Katherine Marshall, who will supply a raffle for the next meeting.

Our written exercise was to use a word suggested by the person sitting next to us and write a short piece or poem using that word.

President Mary proposed that we should hold a book fair sometime in the future. This will be discussed at the committee meeting in April.

Secretary Wendy will keep the website up and running until other arrangements can be made.

We will send some flyers with information about our Society to the International Day luncheon being held by the Burnie City Council on the 6th March.

Treasurer Ros said the Franklin House Fair would be held on Sunday, the 22nd March from 10am-2pm and asked for volunteers to help run our stall.

Vice President Liz will bring a design for a banner to the next meeting.

The meeting closed at 12.30 pm.

The next general and committee meetings will be held on Monday, 6th April 2020.
