Writing Groups: Children's and YABack to all writing groups
Allsorts Writing Group
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.
Down the Rabbit Hole
Down the Rabbit Hole is made of some published authors and some unpublished. We come together to give supportive critiques and workshop ideas, relating to the junior/middle grade/YA categories. Our purpose is to give and receive constructive input and support so that we may create the best novels we can.
Monday Night Children’s Writers
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 regarding writing and publishing. We celebrate group members’ successes and provide support against setbacks. 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.
Novel Writing Group
Novel Writing Group has been meeting for over 12 years, coming together at a writing class in 2005. We are now close friends who all share the creative desire. We aim to keep working at it as the challenges are enormous. We hope one day one or more of us will be published.
NSW Children’s Writing Group
This group provides a forum for critiques, discussion and brainstorming of members’ work, providing a sounding board for ideas, with the aim of becoming published authors. We are a committed group covering a diverse range of children’s and YA fiction genres.
