Writing Groups: Memoir

Back to all writing groups

Hawkesbury Writers/Editors Group

We are a supportive group of writers meeting once a month to discuss writing elements and to help improve each other’s work by providing constructive feedback on submissions. Submissions are up to 3,000 words, and are submitted 2 weeks prior to the meeting, to be critiqued by fellow members. The critiques are then shared on the night of the meeting, along with any discussions of particular interest.
Open to new members

Non-fiction Writers’ Group

Our current participants include both amateurs and published authors who describe unique stories for an audience that is wider than their friends and colleagues in their field of work. Career professionals, retired people, and those who want to capture an experience or a contribution that they have made during their life are welcome to come along and get feedback from people who are interested in their writing. We help writers complete their story and nurture their discipline to reach a publishable standard. We give feedback to emerging writers who can put a narrative through feelings, facts, and figures to create a story that would appeal to a general audience. We critique the writing – not the writer.

Scripto Libris

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.

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 last Saturday of each month at The Whitehouse Cafe in Shellharbour Village, 10am -12pm.

Storyism

Our group is a mixture of men and women of varying ages producing a variety of writing forms. We enjoy meeting new members and reviewing different works including novels, poetry, children’s books, short stories and memoir. Our meetings aim to provide a stimulating and friendly environment in which works may be tested, critiqued, enjoyed and perhaps, improved. Through variety we hope individual writing will be invigorated and strengthened. We like to see an enthusiasm for writing from new members and for them to join in our considerate approach in reviewing member material that is presented to the group.

Sydney Fiction and Non-Fiction Writing Group

The writing group’s aim is to help professional writers along their journey to be published or self- published. Ideally, members have already had their work published. Members must have a book concept that they are committed to working on and meeting regularly for the sake of continuity. Members must respect everyone’s work and come together in an enjoyable atmosphere. The meetings will provide a safe space for constructive critique, sharing tips and strategies, information and resources regarding writing and publishing. Also, to offer support and motivation for writers to develop their work towards the goal of publication. The aim is to get the book published.
