Like many people in Newcastle and the Hunter I began my writing journey through Karen Whitelaw’s creative writing courses through the Hunter WEA. I’d like to second her promotion of the Newcastle Writer’s Festival and suggest you visit her blog, ‘The Writer’s Life’ to find out more about the Festival.
After I finished the creative writing courses, I was keen to continue the writing group process and took up a suggestion to start a writers group. Three years later we have evolved into a great writers group that continues to help speed up the process of expanding and improving each members writing.
We applied last year to present a session at this year’s Newcastle Writers Festival, and to our delight were accepted.
So on Sunday at 3pm in the Mulubinba room of the Newcastle Town Hall we present our session:
The Next Level – How to Take your Writing from Hobby to Publication.
We are one of the four last sessions of the day. We would love to see you there.
I will post about how our session went after Sunday.
If people would like I will also post some of the information from my segment which is - DON’T GO IT ALONE – where I talk about how a writers group can help improve and expand your writing and help move toward publication.
I will be keen for any feedback you would like to give.
See you all there on Sunday at 3pm
