Hi everyone. Just keeping things fresh with a name change and photos: Welcome to Authora Australis!
We're 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.
Hi everyone - Welcome 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.
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,
