Successful local author to share writing experience at SCLA Discussion Evening

The Sunshine Coast Literary Association will host its next discussion and presentation evening on Wednesday, 13 March with local author and guest speaker, James Lergessner.

This rescheduled event, which was to be held in February but was cancelled due to bad weather, will be held at the Buderim Mountain State School Conference Room, 8-42 Main Street, Buderim (opposite St Mark’s Church) from 6.30pm. Entry is free for members and $2 for non-members, payable on the night.

The evening will feature an author talk from Bribie Island writer James Lergessner, who will share details of his growing up in Brisbane in the 1950s, and his experiences since then. James’ recently published book Snippets from a Baby Boomer’s Diary is full of reminiscences that help the reader see who they once were, where they have been, and how the present is impacted on by the past.

James said he was keen to share his experiences with budding writers.

SCLA President, Kerri Jackson, said the discussion evening, as always, would be a stimulating and interesting night with inspiring company.

“The session is held in a relaxed environment and community members can join us for a cuppa, light refreshments and a chat,” Ms Jackson said.

Formed in 2005, the SCLA provides a pathway for the Sunshine Coast’s writers and enthusiasts to explore their interests, develop skills and share their work. It allows like-minded individuals to exchange ideas and seek advice to develop their abilities.

The association offers regular literary workshops, seminars and events, awards programs and monthly “Front Write Up” Writer’s Group evenings that provide an opportunity to showcase the talent of its members. The SCLA also promotes other state and national writing competitions that offer successful applicants great prizes and recognition.
