Dear all! Saturday 28th November 3-5 pm will be our last gathering in 2015 and a farewell to Merrylands Community Centre. We meet as usual in the Miller Street room (buzz at main entrance to Centre, 17 Miller Street Merrylands) On the Agenda is our AGM (super quick) and readings from the 2015 Anthology, plus a short Open Mic (bring small pieces). Everyone is welcome to continue on at 5:30 pm for an early (pay your own way) dinner at the Billabong pub which is close by in Merrylands Road. They have all day specials starting from $10.
Next year we will commence gatherings in Parramatta – February to November – at the very central venue of Future Campus (University of New England) in Church Street. We hope to keep closely to our usual 2nd and 4th Saturday afternoons, but will issue a detailed set of dates in January when the university finalises its calendar. This connection to a university campus is very exciting for us all and we look forward to a great year.
New Writers’ Group Inc Anthology – an annual Print zine for financial members – due 24th August
2015 Editor is Robyne Young. We encourage members to workshop their pieces at the Parramatta Gatherings before or immediately after submission. Please read the guidelines and send your entries with a completed form (see form for details)

DEAR FINANCIAL MEMBERS (and anyone planning to be one:)

This year we hope to publish an anthology that includes work from all our financial members. We know you are a diverse and inventive bunch of people, so send us your best! (See forms below) The stronger the work you send us, the better known the anthology will be and the better it is for all the entrants. We’re counting on you! Those of you have spare ZineWest entries, if you’re not sending them off to a competition, why not enter them in the anthology? There will be editing, and we’d love illustrations if you have them. The anthologies will sell at $10 and no, we can’t hand out free copies. Your membership fees are hard at work supporting basics like this website, our PO box, our insurance (you do get two free special guest tutorials though). The anthology is launched 22nd November which will be our break-up party for 2014 and our AGM. DUE DATE IS MIDNIGHT SUNDAY 24TH AUGUST

Dear Financial Members!
Please polish those wonderful drafts for our next Anthology!
Haven’t started yet???
Well, the deadline is not that far off….
Remember, you can always ask for a workshop of your entries and the Editor encourages everyone to get some feedback. There are four opportunities before the deadline:
Merrylands, 5th March and
Parramatta, 12th and 26th February plus 12th March.
NB There will be a special tutorial by Margaret Ruckert at Parramatta on 26th March, so no individual workshops that day.
However, after you’ve submitted your entries there will also be:
Merrylands 2nd April and
Parramatta 9th April
Want to get involved but not a member? The committee offers half year membership that takes you through to 30th June 2011. See our Membership Page for details.
