Writers' Group to Publish Anthology

The Stromatolights, a five-year-old Western Australian writers' group dedicated to speculative fiction, have announced their intention to publish an anthology in April 2003.

The book, to be launched at the Australian National SF Convention in Perth, is tentatively titled Possession. The editors are seeking both fiction and poetry on the theme of "possession" (although Exorcist look-alikes are specifically discouraged), but submissions (which close on 31 December, 2002) are only being accepted from members of the writers' group or members of the stromatolights mailing list.

The Stromatolights Writer's Group was spawned by "a chance conversation between spec-fic writers at the Fremantle Writers' Festival in 1997"; there was a perceived need at the time for a WA based writers' group dedicated solely for speculative fiction writers. The group aims to improve writing through critiques, discussions, workshops and exercises. It is also functions as a social and networking group, disseminates information on writing classes, contests and markets, and manages an active mailing list. Meetings are held on the third Saturday of every month except December, at:

Katherine Susannah Prichard Writers' Centre
11 Old York Road
Greenmount WA

Meetings run from 1.30pm to 4pm, and there is a fee of $3 to cover biscuits and beverages and hire of the centre.
