Nine members attended our gathering at Cafe Vic, which was a good number considering our change of venue and extreme temperatures of the previous few days.  We were very fortunate with the weather as the previous Saturday and the following were very hot.

The Postal Workshops are a community of women writers but as we write and critique friendships develop. The January gathering is a mix of social interaction and ‘writers’ talk.  It is often the spring board for our writing as we once again focus on what we share throughout the year after the rush and busyness of Christmas and New Year.  With submissions due for the first issues of the Postal Workshop magazines members talk of what they have written or what their plans are for the months ahead.

For some of the members this January gathering is their only face-to-face contact with fellow members of the Society, the yearly catch-up with what has happened since the same-time last year.  Much laughter, chatter, stories to tell, delicious food to enjoy as poems and stories start to percolate as we share the frustrations and joys of a writing life.
