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 FAW
The Blue Mountains Branch of the Fellowship of Australian Writers was established in 1973. We gather to support each other as writers. All genres of writing are explored. Writers are encouraged to publish their work
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.
Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild
Monthly members’ meetings at which we discuss the business of the association and conduct informal workshops by members and guest speakers on the craft and business of creating speculative fiction. A novel writing group and critiquing groups for short stories and novels also meet regularly. The group includes writers from the Southern Highlands and the South Coast.
Coogee Creative Writing Club
A new writer’s group looking for members interested in writing full length fiction novels of any genre. Group will be kept small to ensure we learn each other’s style and skill level. If there’s more interest, I’m happy to help organise other nights and coordinate the cross-pollination of ideas or people. Bring along your laptop and any work you want help with. If everyone brings $10, there’s a fantastic Eastern Mediterranean platter we can share. Activities will include a “touch base” – what each person has worked on, difficulties, successes or new work since last meeting. “Group share” – members can submit a new piece, to be read aloud for discussion and assistance by the group. “Professional Development” – everyone to take turns, leading a short discussion on narrative styles, structure, characters, story-boarding, publishing, marketing etc. “Homework” – choose to share chapters or pieces of work with each other, for comment and feedback in next meeting.
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.
Monet meet to improve their writing skills by exercise and critical analysis of their work. The aim for everyone in the group is to publish novels and/or short stories in fiction.
