Young Fellowship of Australian Writers Launches ‘Nuggets of Gold’

Written by: The Hilltops Phoenix


What better way to continue celebrating 40 years of prizewinning writing than to launch a book?

That is exactly what the Young branch of the Fellowship of Australian Writers has done.

‘Nuggets of Gold’ is an anthology of prizewinning entries of short stories and poetry collected over the forty years of writing competitions held from 1982 by the Lambing Flat Young Branch of the Fellowship of Australian Writers.

Group member Jennifer Hayes said the book includes a history of the branch and is illustrated with photos and material from Branch archives. “It’s a 160-page booklet and very well produced,” Ms Hayes said. “It covers our big annual competition.”

The official book launch will take place at an event to be held at the Uniting Church Hall at 82 Lynch Street, Young from 2 pm to 4 pm on Saturday, June 25.

Founding member of the group, Kathryn Coughran will return to Young to launch the book and cut the official cake in celebration of the occasion and the group’s 40th anniversary.

All members of the community and former members are invited to come along and join the celebrations. Light afternoon tea will be provided and copies of the book will be available on the day.

The group is inviting past members to contact Maree Myhill on 0427 017 884 or Joan Dwyer on 0408 739 733 as they don’t have all addresses and contact details, so if you are a past member or you know of someone who is, please call.

The Writers Group meets at the Young Services Club on the second Monday of every month, except December and January. Anyone with an interest in writing is welcome to attend the meetings. Contact Jennifer Hayes on 0457 903 240 for further information.
