June Meeting

A packed and busy June meeting included a presentation by Sue Gunningham about writing memoir. This was  based on her book ‘All the Days After’, a moving account of the aftermath of losing her partner in the Black Saturday fires.

The meeting also included members talking about their own recent work, and a short talk about preparing work for publication by M L Tompsett of Tompsett Publishing.
