The publication received $3000 in funding through a Port Stephens Council Cultural grant.

The collaborative work has lead to a 95 page publication of poetry and short stories, entitled Sand, Sea and Sun.

The works featured are all inspired by Port Stephen’s natural environment, history and culture.

Anne –Maree Dowell writes “Another Sunset – here we go, Better than a TV show, From our verandah most every night, Nature shares this glorious site.”

The members of the Port Stephens Fellowship of Australian Writers are very proud of the book which is available for sale at a range of outlets including the Port Stephens Council Visitors Centre on Victoria Parade at Nelson Bay.

Port Stephens Mayor Ryan Palmer told News Of The Area, “I am very proud that Port Stephens Council is supporting culture in Port Stephens.”

He congratulated the authors of the publication and those who managed the collaboration to create the book.

“This is a fantastic book that the writers should be proud of,” he said.

The book launch was also addressed by the Fellowship of Australian Writers Secretary Maureen Kelly, who takes time to visit all of New South Wales chapters.

The group meets every Thursday at 10am at Tomaree Library and welcomes new and potential members.
