After two successful years as the Gold Coast Writer’s Association (GCWA) president, Jeannie Barker has stepped down to pave the way for new president Julie Boyd. Following their AGM newly elected Julie is enthusiastic about lifting the GCWA profile to a new height. An accomplished writer, she has published professional learning books for teachers, articles and numerous national journals. Julie, together with her committee, will continue tireless voluntary work to make the GCWA a well-respected literary group on the Gold Coast. Workshops are being planned, guest speakers being booked and focus on their mission statement: to be a home for writers, a place to learn, a place to grow and a place to be heard.
The GCWA meet at Fradgley Hall, above the Burleigh Heads library every third Saturday of the month at 2pm to 4pm, they have guest authors, members book launches and afternoon tea with plenty of networking opportunities. Find out more at http://www.goldcoastwriters.org
