The Campbelltown Writers Groups
In partnership with Campbelltown City Council, WestWords is proud to deliver our long-running writing groups in the area. There are two the choose from.
Fortnightly, Saturdays, 1.30pm-3.30pm.
Term 1 dates:
This writers group runs fortnightly at HJ Daley Library, Campbelltown.
The first session only will be hosted at Wedderburn Writer’s Retreat, 391 Wedderburn Road.
Do you have something you are working on and want to improve? Join the creative writing group at HJ Daley Library with Linda Godfrey.
Each session in the first hour, Linda will give writing prompts that highlight elements of the craft of writing, for example setting, characters, dialogue, plot. The group will write short exercises in prose or poetry, share them with the group. The second hour is set aside for participants to workshop 500 words or less of their writing, share it with the group and get constructive feedback. This is a great way for everyone in the group to understand the more formal points of writing. You can improve your writing and explore your creativity in a supportive and relaxed environment.
Fortnight, Saturdays, 10am-12pm
Term 1 dates:
Online, via Zoom.
Each session will focus on aspects of craft from free writing the piece, revision and editing to completing the draft. At the beginning of the course we will set personal goals for each participant. Each class will include group feedback on ongoing pieces of writing. Each writer will get time for feedback and discussion on how to move forward to realise their personal writing goal by the end of the course.
