First Meeting for 2015


Hi All,

Firstly, Happy New Year to you all!

Happy New Writing Year

I hope this message finds you well and rested after your holiday break, and more importantly, with a creative spirit ready to fly in 2015! I’m feeling positive about this year, that it’s going to be a creative one for all of us …

Our first meeting for 2015 is coming up next Sunday, 15th February, 2015, at 10am. We’d love to see as many members as possible come to the first meeting, where we can discuss our projects and our plans for the year.

Bring something to read if you wish, as it’s always nice to hear members’ writing. Less than 1500 words is good (about eight minutes), and if you want more thorough feedback or critique of your work, please bring extra copies for people to take home and peruse. 

When I sent out the list of member achievements for 2014, I didn’t realise that one of our members, Leonard Goulds, had been granted a residency with FAWWA for 2015. Leonard is the FAWWA writer-in-residence at the moment, and I’m hoping he can come to our meeting and talk to us about the residency, the application process, what he’s working on, and perhaps give us a reading.  

So, come along and join us next Sunday for some motivating discussion and to get us into the writing mindset!

Hope to see you soon,

    • That’s great, Jo-Ann. I remember your book was the Anatomy of a Mermaid, or something like that, wasn’t it? We’d love to hear where it’s at and look forward to seeing you again. x

    Hi there!
    Would love to come by this Sunday 🙂
    I’m also hoping to get some feedback on a piece I might work on this year. Any ideas how many copies I should be prepare?


    • Hi SookKwan, It’s great that you’re coming on Sunday! Bring as many copies of your work as you wish. In the past, people have brought between five and twelve copies—it’s really up to you and depends on how much feedback you want. Copies are handy not just for feedback, but it makes it easier for people to follow the story if they can read it, too. I’m looking forward to meeting you on Sunday!
