Tom Collins (nee Joseph Furphy) and Hattie Furphy’s Houses in Western Australia

Had a lovely stay in Swanborne, Perth at the wonderfully restored home compound of Tom Collins (Such is Life). I gave a workshop to eight enthusiastic Fellowship of Australian Writer’s Western Australia (FAWWA), members in the generous verandahed and timber lounge room, complete with leadlight French doors; met with Lesley Reece (Fremantle Children’s Literature Centre) to talk more plans for poetry in W.A; enjoyed Perth wildflowers and restaurants. Sue Woolfe, the writer in residence and I, and FAWWA hosted a cocktail party to celebrate WA writer’s on our last night at this atmospheric house.
