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
