The group focuses on members' writing and provides positive and developmental critiques. The group is a mutually supportive group whose primary aim is to improve the quality of all our work with helpful comments and useful feedback.
How our meetings work
Work is shared before each meeting by the group members chosen to have their work critiqued. Other group members will then have a chance to read the work beforehand and prepare their comments to be given at the meeting.
Some of our authors are writing for very young children whereas others are focussing on older children and teenagers.
We look at a variety of themes to help develop ideas from start to finish and focus on specific areas that group members need assistance with e.g. the development of endings for children's stories etc.
We are looking for potential publishers and are interested in contacting illustrators. Please do let us know if you have contacts in these fields?
Thursday (fortnightly) 7:30pm to 9:00pm, via Zoom (Online). The host of the group is rotated and ensures agendas and notes are circulated before and after the meetings.
