What others are saying …
I joined Forum because I had things to say, but not necessarily the best way of saying them. Thanks to Forum, the words now have less rough edges. – Rod, Bremer Forum
I joined Forum to cope with the media fallout when my first book was published. Just as well! Book launches, speaking engagements, live radio chats and television interviews pushed me way out of my comfort zone. My latest book was a finalist in the Queensland Literary Awards and saw me curating an exhibition for the State Library of Queensland. Almost daily, at times, I was doing lectures, curator’s tours, promotional videos, and interviews with print journalists and radio and television presenters. Thank God for Forum! Truth be told, I got what I needed from Forum years ago. I’m still here more than a decade later because I want to keep challenging my mind, stay sharp, and because I love my Forum buddies. – Toni, Bremer Forum
