Writing Groups: Open GenreBack to all writing groups
Discovery Writers is a group of both writers and poets who meet in a collaborative environment to provide opportunities for development and publication of writing.
Dorrigo Writers Group
The Dorrigo Writers’ Group meets in a local café and takes place once a fortnight for around four hours. We workshop our writings, offer feedback and challenge each other on a regular basis. Critique is constructive; we cultivate strong opinions; our debates can get loud – mostly its laughter. We don’t impose word limits, which means longer pieces can be read in full. This creates a ‘big picture’ impression of a piece and what the writer is aiming for. The critique tends to focus on character and character development, plot dynamics, the flow of language, voice, etc., rather than getting bogged down in details the writer will pick up in the next redraft anyway.
