NEW Writers’ Group Incorporated (NWG Inc) is a not for profit, incorporated association. All our income from fees, publication sales, grants and donations is spent on our programs for writers. All work is done by volunteers. See Contact Form, Charter and 2019 Committee details below.
Main Venue for GATHERINGS in 2019: UNE Sydney, 211 Church Street, Parramatta, upstairs in the Collaborative Space. Time is 3-5 pm unless we post otherwise on the blog and FB. The rules of all our venues must be respected.
Regular Gatherings: All writers are welcome, regardless of experience and writing genre. Share your work in the open mic; receive feedback on short pieces/extracts in friendly workshops. Entry is $2 only but if you become a regular we’d appreciate your financial membership support ($35 pa plus $1 joining fee) which helps cover insurance and website costs. Members can also attend up to two special guest workshops per year for free.

Charter: We aim to cultivate writing in Western Sydney. We celebrate and exhibit the distinctive character of local writing in its diversity. As an active community of writers we are committed to encouraging and supporting each other’s writing progress. Our projects include writers working in a variety of genre and with varying levels of experience. We do not discriminate on the grounds of colour, nationality, descent, gender, sexual orientation, politics, age, religion and personal beliefs. We expect all attendees to observe this policy and show respect for each other at our events. Participants need to be sixteen or older. Younger children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
