Stanthorpe Writers Group

This coming week marks the inaugural meeting of what will hopefully become The Stanthorpe Writers Group*.

Thanks to an article in the Stanthorpe Border Post, I received interest from a dozen local writers who, as yet, I know very little about. 

I have gone no further than preparing a flyer on the best way to critique an author’s work (from a workshop I attended) as well as a rough agenda so that we can power through those necessary housekeeping items such as formats and themes for the meetings.

I am excited by the prospect of spending at least a few hours every month (with perhaps online and email contact in between) with like-minded people in my area so we can share tips, practice our craft and provide much needed encouragement to each other.

If anyone has advice on writing groups that I could pass on to the group, it would be very much appreciated.

*You will notice the absence of an apostrophe where writers should be writers’.   I have always felt it looks somewhat cumbersome in a heading so I decided to opt for the Queensland Writers Centre example of leaving it out all together.

    What a brilliant idea. Wish I lived in Stanthorpe!

  2. Yes, apart from the freezing cold winters, Stanthorpe is a pretty special place.

    Hi Karenlee, I missed the article in the Border Post, can you put the details here?

    Also, you should put up a page on GraniteNet Groups: http://www.granitenet.com.au/groups – it’s free and over 70 community groups are there already. Email me the details and I can set you up with a group.
