Women Writers' ZOOM Literary Speakers - Wednesday 11 November, 2020

KEYNOTE SPEAKER - Susanne Gervay - Story Matters - 11 November

Susanne Gervay 
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.” Atticus Finch. ― page 114 Chapter 16 in Being Jack (extract taken from Harper Lee’s, To Kill a Mockingbird).
 
Stories that reach young people as well as adults can be the conduit to values of inclusion, the environment, racism, disability, bullying, peace, family, mental health, gender, the great issues that impact our lives and the world. Books such as Narnia, To Kill A Mockingbird, Anne Frank, Catcher in the Rye become the midwives of powerful ideas delivering stories that matter to young people and society.
 
Awarded the Lifetime Social Justice Literature Award by the International Literacy Association, Order of Australia and nominee for Australia for Lindgren Memorial Award, SUSANNE GERVAY writes on significant issues reaching young people and adults.

MEMBER SPEAKER - Margaret Zanardo - An Accidental Love Affair With Poetry - 11 November

Margaret Zanardo Margaret Zanardo is a Sydney poet, writer and graphic designer. She has a background in languages, art and English literature. After working as a graphic designer Margaret decided, on a whim, to take a writing course. She began with writing short stories but one day, at a SWW workshop, realised that poetry was something she would also like to try. She joined the Harbourside Poets and... unexpectedly fell in love with poetry. She has since written many mythology poems, humorous, children’s and contemplative poems and, of course, love poems. Her work has been published in a number of poetry journals, however she still feels, in a way, that she is an ‘accidental poet'.
 
Margaret’s first poetry book, ‘Time Out of Mind’, was published by Ginninderra Press in December 2019.
It is a chapbook, a collection of twenty poems on love and loss.  (Available from the publisher at  www.ginninderrapress.com.au  Cost $5 + postage)
