The Inspiring Teddy Bear
Favourite things: Roland Fishman, author, taking people back to their future Sydney Morning Herald Spectrum Article, by Ali Gripper, published 19 November 2014
Roland Fishman’s Writer’s Studio is one of the quiet success stories of Sydney. Ever since the journalist-turned-author began running classes in his Bondi living room 20 years ago, he has steadily helped more than 20 novels and screenplays get published, as well as seeing thousands of people rediscover the power of their imagination.
He was in his mid-30s at the time, and it saddens him it took so long to get back in touch with his own creativity. “It felt like I was finally doing what I was meant to be doing when I grew up,” he says.
