What we're about

Writers Bloc (www.thewritersbloc.net) provides a place for people to develop their writing, read fantastic stories and create collectives with other emerging writers.

Whether it’s easier for you to engage with us online or off, Writers Bloc is for writers, wherever you are.

We are in the process of developing a website that will change the way that writing is shared. It will reward engaged feedback and elevate great prose.

Offline, in towns all across the country we have groups that operate as part of a larger bloc. See our calendar for more info on how to get involved with people in your area. Let us know what you write and we will find you readers who will love to read it.

If you'd like to host your own #writehere session, we'd love to support you here on meetup or through twitter and facebook.

Happy writing

A$5.00

Write Here is an opportunity to get some writing done, surrounded by other writers. We like to think of it as a cross between writing bootcamp and positive peer-pressure. It's a commitment on the first Saturday of each month to get two hours of writing done, in the company of other writers. It's a way to get out of the garrett, meet your goals, and meet other writers to share your work with. We charge $5 for the Meetup and it gets you: 1. A delicious Coffee, Tea or Soft Drink from Coffee, Tea and Me for the start of the session. 2. Ensure that the limited space we have is used by committed writers. Event Schedule 11 - 11.30 - People turn up, we have a chat about what you're working on and set some goals for the session. 11.30 - 1.30 - Heads down and write your little heart out. We have a large space, so spread out, make yourself comfortable and smash your daily goal 1.30 onwards - Some people are happy to say thanks and leave, others want to go to the pub to debrief. Write Here is part of an extended network of writing groups around Australia. We have groups in Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Hobart, Launceston, Darwin, Canberra, Frankston and Torquay. If you'd like to connect with writers from around the country, we can connect you through the Forum on the Writers Bloc website. --- Write Here is an opportunity to get some writing done. It's not a critique group but we'll happily discuss your ideas at the end of the session if you want to stick around. If you're interested in getting some more structured feedback on your work, thewritersbloc.net is a great place to get it. And please remember, that if you're unable to make it, please change your RSVP or let us know ASAP.
