The editors, agents and workshops were amazing. It was a friendly, sociable atmosphere. I had such a great time. The cocktail party was hilarious. Costumes of such variety, and so much noise as 250+ members laughed, chatted and wobbled their way around, editors and agents. lol..
I met so many people I didn't know, and also met up with the ones I did. Thank you to those who took the time to tap me on the shoulder. I am hopeless at spotting someone in a crowd. :)

FOUR POINT'S AUTHOR NETWORK
The group I belong to in Coff's Harbour was one of three groups who were successful in our application through RWAustralia Grants Scheme, to hold a writer's retreat at South West Rocks. YAH!
Our members are: Fiona McArthur, Karly Blakemore, Diane Curran, Bronwyn Parry, Jenn McLeod and myself. I must thank Jenn for putting in the application, after a lot of discussion. THIS IS SO EXCITING. :)
