PAST      July 1st 2012    Ron Sewart's Book Launch went off well. Officially launched by that good bloke and serial book launcher Bob Baldwin MP an Indian theme was adopted for the yummy eats and to compliment  'Ravi's Karma' which of course is set in that country. Well done Ron the easy part is over, now to market and promote what is a really good read. What's happening with Book 2?????

July 15th 2012    A most enjoyable poetry afternoon was held at the hall, lots of great origional stuff entertained for a couple of hours. These laid back afternoons have proved to be very popular so that another is to be held possibly on 14th October,. Willl confirm  the date and time asap.

PRESENT     Moira Hooper's book is almost to the published stage, just a few tweaks with the printer. Come on Moira we are all waiting and well done. The bush balladeer Bob Bush ....yes he's published another and a beauty 'FROM A BUSH POETS PEN'. Truly a first class collection of bush poetry from one of the best. Contact Bob for your personally inscribed copy. Think that is Bob's fourth (pretty good for an old bloke).

Maureen Kelly advises that work on the Fire Brigade History continues and will be ongoing for a while yet. No jokes, this is a big job and will take time. Interviews, photographs, an enormous amount of data and research...it'll be worth waiting for and become an importtant part of  the North Arm Cove story.

Maureen and Shawna Hartley attended Karuah PS and gave students some handy hints when entering the forthcoming writing competition which closes on 30th September 2012. Come on everyone, start writing!

FUTURE     Vacy Show 16th September. Bob Bush, Garry Boyd, Wayne Jarman and Ron Stewart will be attending busking books and poetry...why not come out on the Sunday arvo and have a look at the show? Hope it is a better day than at Raymond Terrace when these guys busked outside Sunset Books National Bookshop Day 11th August on an absolute shocker of a  day.

Wayne Jarman has been heavily involved in the stage production of 'THE ELEPHANT MAN 'at the new Newcastle Theatre in Adamstown 'THE FACTORY'.  Dates 7th - 15th September. Contact Ticketek 49291977. Well done Wayne, don't know how you get the time and write books as well.

For  a small writing group we have published and/or in the process of writing the following number of books. Let me know if I have missed anybody.

     Bob Bush       4     Garry Boyd         4.5      Wayne Jarman        2        Ron Stewart        1     
     Moira Hooper        1        Margaret Wilson       0.5        Anthology       1               TOTAL       14

           Wonder how many FAW's our size could claim as many? Any others we don't know about......you would think it was easy......which it ain't.

That's all for the moment folkes...will let you know how things are proceeding with the possible purchase of  a P A System and one or two signs to publicise events such as our poetry afternoons.

Good Writing .
