Port Writers Begins Writing Its Own Chapter

    A small group of published and aspiring writers joined pens to establish Port Writers Inc, a local community-led writers’ group for and by writers.

    Meeting up in a local loungeroom, organisation began and members elected to positions and committee roles. The group officially kicks off by opening its doors to new members from January 2015.

    Keep an eye on this space – we aim to be around for a long time.

    Back – Debra Deasey, Gillian Scott, Fay Blundell, Melanie Wass (Committee Members)

    Front – Wendy Haynes (Treasurer), Rachel Palmer (President), Frank Urban (Secretary)
