NEW Writers Group Inc’s  annual anthology zine was launched at UNE Sydney, 211 Church Street Parramatta, on Saturday 24 November. This 14th edition brought together the traditional and the contemporary, poetry, short prose and photography. The anthology is a self-funded project for our regular attendees. The  contributors included three members of the Parramatta branch of FAW – NSW.  Printing was by Bullprint. Editor was SE Crawford. Photos in Gallery below were taken by our official snappers: Siham Chamoun and Mihaela Cristescu.

New Writers’ Group Inc Anthology

What has changed in 2018?
We hope we’ve found a way to continue this lovely little journal which has included some great writing and images over the years:

• We have reduced the financial membership fee to $35 which means there will be no automatic inclusion of a free Anthology.
• Regular gatherers as well as financial members are invited to enter.
• We ask all entrants to pay $10 in advance for their first copy and indicate they are happy to purchase at least one further copy to share everyone’s talent.

Last 2015 Gathering, NWG


Carol Amos, NWG President

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.

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
