Elsie Steer was a recent member of NWG Inc. Ill health prevented Elsie joining us at Merrylands or Parramatta but at last year’s ZineWest, Carol Amos read her poem The Lake. One of Elsie’s timeless stories has also been published in the NEW Writers’ Group Anthology. Elsie was an accomplished artist and illustrated her own writing. She will be especially missed by her long term writing friends at St. Marys Creative Writing Group. The St Mary’s members are dedicating their next anthology to Elsie.
