Hi everyone. Welcome to Authora Australis! 

We're an online literary journal and a group of inner west-types centered in Marrickville, looking to meet like minded persons to engage in some free writing exercises and writing critique over a beer or a glass of wine. We hope to span all genres, styles and (post) structures of writing. Anyone is welcome, whether you want to start on a novel, hammer out a poem, knock out a short-story or blog piece, or just finish your thesis. We hope to begin with a few writing exercises for people to get to know each other and get comfortable sharing their writing, and then move into sharing and critiquing their existing work. 

Hope to see you all soon.

Write Night in Marrickville

Needs a location

Hi everyone - after a bit of a hiatus, Welcome back to Write Night in Marrickville!

We meet at the Gasoline Pony (on Marrickville Road). It's a great venue. We meet out the back in an outdoor area, at a big long table and several smaller tables

We normally get enough people that we break into smaller seperate groups of about 6-8 or so. Each group writes and critiques together.

We'll start the evening with some writing exercises, so please bring along some scrap paper and your favourite pencil/pen. After that, we'll go over any written material you care to share with us: two full pages at most, or a few more if spaced out (such as with poetry). Please bring around 6-8 print-outs of pre-written work, and be prepared to offer constructive - but nice and supportive - feedback. As usual, if there are too many people, we'll split into two groups.

Also as usual, we will set the official finish time as 9pm, but people often hang around for a bit of mid-week socialising with fellow creatives, so feel free to drop by and stay a while. Very relaxed and welcoming!

Many thanks, and see you there,
