SSOA Christmas Party 2016

SSOA Christmas Party 2016

Festive readings at SSOA party

SSOA Christmas Party performances were a big hit this year! Our writers read some flash fiction and excerpts of longer works in the salubrious surrounds of the Imperial Hotel at Paddington.

The pictures were worth a thousand words … and the video worth even more. See our About Us page for Philip de Villiers’ memorable video of Michelle Maguire signing in Auslan an excerpt of her memoir being read by Sharon Dean.

Writers including Jenny Neil, Michelle Maguire & novelist Diane Harding were just some of those who took part at the SSOA Christmas Party 2016.

    it was a wonderful evening and I enjoyed all the stories. Some were part of a larger work, some were short stories and some poetry. It was nice to see the authors read their own work. I liked also meeting each person there and discovering what they liked to do. Congratulations to Christine for arranging such an event. She looked very spiffy in her wonderful dress. Photos show we were all sober at the time. Great night, Cheers Di Harding
