Seize the Day

A long-standing group formed in 2000, we are small in size, which allows for in-depth work on each member’s writing at each meeting. Members of this group write in different areas: historical fiction, detective fiction, short stories, poetry and memoir. We work hard to support each other as we try to bring long projects to fruition, and some of our members have achieved publishing success. Seize the Day writers include several published authors, as well as the winner of the 2019 Stella Prize and the winner of the 24th Scarlet Stiletto Short Story Award. Unfortunately we are currently not taking new members.

Shellharbour Writers

Shellharbour Writers is a small but fun group of like minded people, working towards the same goal—to write. We have poets, memoir, fiction and fantasy writers who come together once a month to work on a theme. The group is supportive and we have have simple workshop activities with time to just discuss what we are all doing and ask for help from the group. We meet the second Saturday of each month at The Whitehouse Cafe in Shellharbour Village at 10.30.
