Sydney School of Arts & Humanities hosts several weekly online writing groups via ZOOM, where authors share and review one another’s writing, and (optionally) take part in a ten-minute writing exercise.
Thought-provoking & helpful
(via ZOOM during COVID restrictions)
Writers bring work to read that ranges from memoir and non-fiction to novels, short stories and poetry. We understand that authors are at different stages of writing experience and publication, and the gentle helpful feedback we give takes that into account. You can tell us what advice you're looking for and we'll focus on how we can offer some guidance for you to achieve your writing goals.
We have over 6,000 members of Meetup groups, the Sydney Writers’ Circle Meetup being our most popular. All members are eligible to attend, whether regularly or on a casual basis. Our other creative writing and/or memoir Meetups are: Writing Sydney, Inner West Readers and Writers Bloc (yes the spelling with a missing 'k' is intentional!).
ALL FACE-TO-FACE MEETUPS ARE CURRENTLY ON HOLD DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS COD-19 RESTRICTIONS & OUR OFFICE IS CLOSED EXCEPT FOR ONLINE COMMUNICATIONS. INSTEAD, MEMBERS ARE ENJOYING OUR VIRTUAL ZOOM MEETUPS, WHICH YOU CAN JOIN WITH ONE SIMPLE CLICK ONLINE.
