Subscribe to our weekly e-newsletter Newsbite for updates on our regular program of courses, events and writing groups.
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.
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.
If you are interested in convening your own writing group and would like to add your group to the database, contact us! You may also wish to read our resource sheet, How to Start a Writers’ Group.
Writing NSW also hosts online writing groups. Contact us to find out how you can start your own online writing group using our Zoom account.
We are grateful to the Inner West Council for their ongoing support for our writing groups program.
Due to overwhelming demand, several of our writing groups are not 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.
