It was an inspiring get-together with other authors at the Women History Writer’s Month at the Eltham Library
The final day had arrived. Once more, Wendy Dunn was the lynch pin that held everything together.
She organised not only the panel discussions, but for Rebecca Jane to sell our books, James and other Swinburne Students to help keep the day running smoothly, the question to be addressed and the food, wine and munchies that kept us all going. All we had to do was to sit out the front and talk about the way we had crafted our stories.
We also were delighted when Rebecca revealed that she had sold many of our books while we were taking questions. She did an amazing job handling all sales etc.
The program said, All Welcome Saturday March 25th and it was lovely to see so many interested people attending
The powerful and different ways that non fiction and fiction tell the stories of the past, and why women are so good at telling these kinds of stories.
The people participating in the panel discussion
Professor Josie Arnold
Barbara Gaskell Denvil
Chaired by Eloise Faichney
Several other authors joined us on the day
There were many and varied questions addressed to the panel from the audience and Eloise Faichney was amazing as our chair person. We enjoyed sharing our experiences as writers and discussed how we had managed to overcome many writing obstacles during writing and researching our own books.
Closing celebration – wine and light refreshments provided.
It was not only inspirational talking to people who had attended but wonderful to hear the many varied projects they were writing. Family stories, a favourite aunt’s life, a grandfather who had worked hard all is life, famous people, Kings, Queens, ancestors who were Greek, Italian or German. Everyone had a story to tell and I wanted to hear them all.
I enjoyed every minute spent talking, discussing and sharing our stories. Many thanks to all who participated and made it such a wonderful finale.
