Wonderful windfall for writers

Priscilla Indrio of Claremont, Carmen van Zyl of Hout Bay, Louisianne Diepering of Noordhoek and author Erika Hauptman of Hout Bay.

A writers’ group launched its third book, Windfall, at Nova Zonnestraal in Constantia last week.

The Write Girls was founded almost 15 years ago by Priscilla Holmes of Tokai after a creative-writers workshop run for the International Women’s Club.

The group consists of Lynn Rowand of Constantia, Caroline Gilbert of Glencairn, Erika Hauptmann of Hout Bay, Susan Herrick of Kenilworth, Carole Armstrong-Hooper of Bantry Bay and Ms Holmes.

They meet regularly to hone and polish their talents (“Book stranger than fiction,” Bulletin, January 17, 2019).

The creation of Windfall began at a planning meeting in Onrus in February last year, little knowing that a pandemic was in the making. Despite lockdown, the writers plotted and planned and met online, discussing each character amid much laughter and fun.
