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.
NEW Writers Group Incorporated acknowledges the Darug people who are the traditional custodians of the land of Parramatta where we meet, and where most of our online activity is generated. We pay respect to the elders past and present of the Darug nation and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people visiting places where we gather.
