Eager for professional development and feedback on their works-in-progress, Brisbane based writers, Marianne and Rowena created ROR, wRiters on the Rise.
While there are plenty of opportunies for beginning writers to learn their craft, the emerging writer has less chance, especially if their field is speculative fiction. Marianne and Rowena were delighted to get expressions of interest from Margo, Maxine and Tansy.
On the last weekend in October 2001 they met at Montville where they spent the weekend working intensively on their manuscripts.
