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.

We are a dynamic and supportive group of published and aspiring writers of all genres in the kids’ lit spectrum. We provide a safe space for constructive critiquing, share tips and strategies, information and resources re writing and publishing. We celebrate group members’ successes and provide support against setbacks. Unfortunately, our group is not suitable for beginner writers. Our group purpose is to provide a supportive, productive and constructive environment for writers to develop their work towards the goal of publication and to enhance and guide each others understanding and skills in the craft of writing.

We all attended Alan Mill’s year long novel writing course in 2011 and thereby share a common language and serious commitment to writing. Our aim is to write the best that we are able, encourage and support each other, celebrate the achievements and milestones, and enjoy the journey with hearty chuckles along the way.
