Christine Sykes - Vice-President

Christine Sykes has three published books.  The Changing Room won the The Society of Women Writers NSW 2020 fiction award.  

Her debut novel, The Changing Room, was based on her experiences at the non-profit Dress for Success which provides practical support and help for women looking for work. 

Being raised in Albert Street, Cabramatta provided the basis for her memoir, Gough and Me: My Journey from Cabramatta to China and Beyond. In Gough and Me, Christine overlays the social and political events of the tumultuous decades of the 1960s and 70s, and the impact that Gough Whitlam had – not only on her own life but generations of Australians.

Christine is the Vice-president of Sutherland FAW, and a member of SCWC, ASA and Writing NSW.
