“Imagine a writers’ festival so friendly and intimate that you could chat with your favourite author over coffee and have a book signed without standing wearily in a long queue. Picture a setting so comfortable and elegant you would instantly feel at home. Imagine a series of lively sessions showcasing novels written by Australian women, encompassing art, mystery and historical fiction set in periods as diverse as medieval times and nineteenth and twentieth century Australia. Plus a warm and enthusiastic audience abuzz with insightful questions...That sums up the second annual Rose Scott Women Writers’ Festival, which was held on August 15 and 16 at the Women’s Club, overlooking Sydney’s leafy Hyde Park…It was an honour to be part of the festival and I enjoyed every minute of it”. http://www.deborahobrien.com.au/index.php/blog/167-rose-scott-women-writers-festival-2014

“A heartfelt 'thank you' to everyone involved in the running of the RSWWF. It was a great day: interesting conversations, articulate and perceptive speakers and a great opportunity to share my enthusiasm for writing in all its colours and stripes.”

Arriving at the Festival was like entering the portals of a magical world. It impressed me immediately as one which epitomised the spirit of Rose Scott herself – encouraging, helpful, supportive, dynamic and inspiring. In just one day, the Festival promoted excellence in writing, provided a diversity of literary genres and facilitated fellowship in a relaxed and beautiful environment…a deeply thoughtful, creative and brilliantly successful Festival.
