Writing Groups: Children's and YABack to all writing groups
Allsorts Writing Group
We are a supportive, vibrant, intelligent and highly skilled bunch of writers. We write for the desire to create and express our own unique perceptions and voice. Our goal is to support each other by producing up to 2000 words of writing each month, which is then given positive and constructive critique in a workshop situation. We are open to all genres of work and encourage supportive feedback in an encouraging atmosphere.
Blue Mountains Writers
We are an established group of writers writing across diverse fiction genres and sharing the beautiful Blue Mountains. We meet monthly to provide critical and constructive feedback on each other’s work. Working in different genres gives us the ability to give feedback from different viewpoints. Members are at various stages in their writing.
Dandelion Writers’ Group
Originally formed from the 2012 Year of the Novel class, the Dandelions support each others’ writing goals and manuscript development. They are looking for keen writers of middle grade and young adult fiction who are progressing steadily in their developing novels. They aim to establish a supportive writing community, a regular and positive space for their writing practices and to create a positive space for discussion and creative exploration. New members should be interested in progressing their novels and prepared to mainly write during the group session, with some discussion and critiquing included.
