Due to restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, most Writing NSW groups are currently convening online. Subscribe to our weekly e-newsletter Newsbite for updates on our regular program of courses, events and writing groups throughout this isolation period.
Writing NSW hosts over thirty active writing groups for writers of different interests and levels of experience. These groups are self-run. Writing NSW provides a free meeting space, tea and coffee-making facilities as well as a listing on our website, on the condition that all group participants must be current financial members of Writing NSW.
If you are interested in joining a Writing NSW group, fill out the form at the bottom of this page and one of our convenors will be in touch with you shortly. Please ensure that the group you would like to join is open to taking on new members and that you are able to make their meeting times before sending your query.
We have also included in this directory a range of groups held throughout NSW. You can search by genre or location. Please note that you should contact those groups directly yourself if you are interested in hearing more from them.
Writing groups held at Writing NSW are supported by the Inner West Council.
Due to overwhelming demand, our writing groups will not be accepting new requests for admission for the time being. We hope to open applications shortly, though please get in touch via our standard contact form if you have any general questions about our writing group program.
