March and April 2016 News

GATHERING DATES FutureCampus, upstairs, 211 Church Street, Parramatta 3-5 pm

12th March: No meeting will be held – our venue is unavailable.
26th March: Join us for an informal session – open mic, writer’s news,”Author Report”

2nd April instead of 9th due to Campus scheduling
SPECIAL WORKSHOP – The Editor’s Nightmare – an interactive exercise where you work in a small team to decide which pieces will be published in an exciting new journal. No experience necessary – just an open mind to the writings of others.
We will follow the workshop with an Open Mic. Feel free to bring a small piece of your original work, poetry, prose – or an extract of a longer piece. You have around three minutes max!  Or you can sit back and listen!

23rd April – two topics – you can combine them if you wish. Sonnets and how we write them today, plus the themes we think of on Anzac Day. Carol Amos has a prize for best original sonnet – but you can read any short piece you like in the open mic!
