Prof. Elizabeth Webby AM
Professor Elizabeth Anne Webby, AM, Patron of the Fellowship of Australian Writers NSW Inc passed away August 6, 2023. She was Professor of Australian Literature at the University of Sydney from 1990–2007. Elizabeth will be greatly missed by her colleagues across the field of Australian literature and the arts. She will be fondly remembered by FAW members who had the pleasure of meeting her at our Sydney Awards Luncheons held pre-Covid. RIP.
State President for over 20 years, Trevar Langlands – who was more recently one of our Patrons – passed away 13 July 2023. For many of us Trevar epitomised the FAW NSW, with his unique voice, and dynamic personality he presided over meetings and award luncheons with aplomb. Through his involvement with community radio station 100.3FM and his own weekly arts and entertainment show, he always remained committed to the FAW and all the members. RIP.
