Writing Groups: Open GenreBack to all writing groups
Stanton Library Writers’ Group
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.
The Inkwell is an eclectic group of women authors, writing across a range of genres including romance, women’s fiction, historical, crime, women’s fiction. literary fiction and short stories. We meet regularly to inspire and motivate each other, share the wisdom we learn from others about the writing and publishing world, and provide critiques and feedback to improve our work.
Warrah Writers has been active for more than 10 years. We meet in Warrah Hall near Willow Tree in the Liverpool Plains area of NSW. We are keen to encourage some new members who may have recently moved to the country from another area and want to write and meet new friends.
Women Writers Network
We are a combination of prose writers, poets, and playwrights. All at different levels of experience and expertise. All with the desire to become better at what we do. Our group includes women who have just begun to write – those who have had plays produced – novels, memoirs or poetry published – and those striving to be published. The emphasis is on constructive feedback in a friendly, encouraging, but dedicated environment, fostering all stages and all genres of writing.
We meet weekly but attendance is flexible. There are usually eight to twelve women at any sitting. If you wish to read you’ll need to limit your prose to about 1000 words and have copies for us to edit as you read. And that’s it really.
You are welcome to try us for size – see if we fit.
We come together to support, encourage and enjoy each others writing efforts and journey. We are not a critique group. We aim to enjoy writing, reading our writing out loud to each other and being positive towards the writing output of each individual group member. We ask that members love writing and are willing to contribute positively to the writing efforts of others in the group.
