Waverley Writers of FOWL held their first meeting for 2018 on the 18th February. This was the 32nd meeting since the group’s inception in February 2015. As usual, it took place from 2-4 pm in the Theory Room in Waverley Library.
At the start, we welcomed one new member, whose positive perspective was greatly appreciated. Three years ago, when Waverley Writers began, we started with a handful of participants. Today we have fifteen committed members and counting.
Despite two key members being absent, due to travel abroad and ill health, there were seven people at this meeting.
Readings included two essay pieces, a novel chapter, a “slice-of-life” narrative poem, and a report on a painting from the Art Gallery of NSW, by the 20th century artist Francis Bacon, which gave rise to a lively discussion. We also heard feedback from two members who had attended a recent self-publishing event held at the Library. And an upcoming Library event with short-listed Nib Award author, Madeleine O’Dea, (The Phoenix Years) was publicized for the benefit of members.
Time was set aside, at the end of the meeting, for members to assist Maureen Mendelowitz in her preparations towards her forthcoming book launch at the Library on 12th March. It was decided that WWF would like to prepare a cheese board for the event.
We hope to see many of you at the Book Launch on 12th March.
Our next meeting will take place on Sunday the 18th of March 2018, from 2-4pm in the Theory Room in Waverley Library.
