Yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of being the invited guest speaker at the August meeting of the Fellowship of Australian Writers, ACT Branch. The FAW was described to me not long ago as once having been essentially the union for Australian writers. I have to say in my previous years of involvement with the union movement, I have never walked into a union meeting to the sound of a harp playing and greeted by a hug from the organiser!

For anyone who may be interested, I have uploaded my speaking notes and a handout to my website,, on the Latest News page.
