Romance / Erotica Writing Workshop

Eurobodalla Writers have been lucky to snare Romance writer, Nicole Murphy, for a workshop on November 5, 10 am – 12 noon. Any budding writers, keen to brush up on their skills or move out of their comfort zone and try something different, are welcome to attend. The venue is the Boardroom at the Moruya Golf Club. Cost is $15 for non-members.

Nicole has had 6 novels, 3 novellas and countless short stories published since 2001. You can check out her website: Apart from a list of her publications, there is a very useful selection from 32 writers on the topic of their writing habits and processes.

If you wish to attend the workshop, contact Rosie Toth (0437627756) or Dianne Wiggins (44739397) by Monday 3 November.


Barry Lake R.I.P.

One of our larger-than-life members (for over 10 years) passed away September 2, 2014. Born in 1932, Barry spent the next 82 years filling every moment of his life. His career as an engineer in the military was coupled with being an enthusiastic Boy Scout, surfer, lifesaver, bushman, sailor, parachutist, marathon runner, bike-rider and motor-homer. After retirement from the military he set up Lake’s Leathercraft, which started off as a kitchen table industry.

His community activities were also notable. He established the Narooma YHA, gave 20 years to the Bush Fire Brigade and Rescue, was chairman of the steering committee for Moruya TAFE, first patron of M.A.C.S. and a Rotarian. Both within and beyond the community he was known for his skill in writing and performing bush poetry and yarns, at one time winning the National Competition for Yarn Spinning at the Canberra Folk Festival.

Barry’s contribution to the EuroFAW will be very much missed.
