About The Event

Three women, strangers, set out for a writers' course in Paris.

Ruth: 'To ponder a pestering dilemma through writing: Is it possible to enjoy a personal relationship at this stage of life, or will I devote my country life to tending my French garden, reading and writing? What must be compromised?

Kaye: 'To spend time on creative writing, something I always wanted to do. It was a hidden desire. Something deep within me knew that if I wanted to write, I needed to go to Paris.'

Vicki: 'Travelling to Paris was an escape, an opportunity to be me without obligations as a mother, daughter, wife or friend. To be alone with myself.'

They found much more and became the Rue Berger Writers.

 These letters are a testament to the power of the pen, women, and friendship.

The Rue Berger Writers are: 

Vicki Geraghty began her writing life as a journalist with fashion trade press. She has moonlighted in various government roles and as a counsellor. Now with her husband Geoff she owns and operates a boutique hotel, an Australian Fawlty Towers in the Blue Mountains. Travel and talking are her favourite pastimes. 

Ruth Morgan was born in country New South Wales, and after 40 years of raising a family and studying in Sydney, Ruth now lives and works on the edge of a small country town in the Riverina. Ruth was drawn to social ecology in her fifties and holds masters and doctoral degrees in this discipline. 

Kathryn Kaye Spence is a neonatal nurse with over 40 years of experience. She received an AM for her contribution to nursing. She has now turned to creative writing to use the other side of her brain. She lives in Newtown with her philosopher husband and cute cat. Her interests are travel, reading, and writing
