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.
‘Seasons’ is the theme of the centre’s 2018 anthology. Submissions are open to FoRAC members only. The closing date is May 31. For full details email
