FoRAC chairperson Bec Thomas at the launch of Rockingham Writers Centre’s first member anthology.

 

Debut anthology inspires and entertains

In 2017 Rockingham Writers Centre celebrated the launch of its first member anthology. Ripples gave 19 writers connected through their passion for story telling a chance to showcase their work. The diverse collection of short fiction and poetry ranges from romance to science fiction, historical to contemporary. The writers explore themes of love and loss, hope and despair in settings both everyday and exotic. There are stories about tentative new beginnings, taking chances, cold-hearted murder and alien encounters; to touch hearts, to inspire and to entertain. It is a collection for those who love to read and celebrate creative expression in its varied forms.
Ripples is available from the centre for $15 per copy. All proceeds go to the centre.

2018 anthology – Seasons

Seasons of life, love and nature are explored in this collection of short fiction and poetry that will touch hearts, inspire and entertain. Featuring the work of 12 writers connected through their passion for creative expression, it is a celebration of the written word. Although the stories and poems are linked by a common theme, they reflect a diversity of styles from light-hearted to lyrical and amusiing to thought-provoking, in settings both contemporary and historical. Beautifully crafted poems that paint vivid word pictures of nature’s changing face are complemented by stories about new beginnings, unexpected encounters, changing relationships and taking chances.
Seasons is available from the centre for $15 per copy. All proceeds go to the centre.
