OBERON Writers' Workshop is celebrating 12 years of writing and fellowship with the publication of an anthology.

This includes work from the workshop writers and invited authors and contains a diverse range of stories and genres - fiction, science fiction, humour, poetry and life writing.

The variety of work from the 14 local authors explores a range of experiences both real and fictional, from deeply personal to humorous.

The stories delve into our connection with animals, bring forth those treasured childhood memories, as well as tread the path of the quirky and the ridiculous.

READ ALSO:

There is also delightful lighthearted fiction and heartfelt poetry of life's past and present experiences.

Come along and join us in celebrating this collection of eclectic work from local authors.

The launch of the book will be on Saturday, November 9 at the Robert Hooper Community Centre in Fleming Street, Oberon from 6pm to 8pm, when finger food and drinks will be served.
