    Local writers groups (particularly in Australia)

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by blahfeld, Mar 25, 2013.

    I'm wondering if there's a directory somewhere, or even a thread in this forum, that lists local (geographical) writers groups. If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great - I'd like to meet with local writers, including socially, if I can find a group near me. I'm on the mid north coast of NSW, Australia.

    have you googled for 'australian writers groups'?... or more specifically, for groups in your area?... that should give you all the info you need...

    Try the local MeetUp website. How far north of Sydney are you?

    Sadly it wasn't that easy. There's all manner of associations, guilds, societies... plenty of bush poetry (and other poetry)... a lot are state or national organisations; or local groups but not local to me.

    Doesn't seem to be anything listed on Meetup either.

    I did find this, which looks promising: http://www.fawnsw.org.au/countrybranches.html

    That looks good -- hopefully it works out. Have you also tried asking at any local bookstores or libraries? Sometimes they know of or host writers groups, or know of other people who may have asked about them.
