About

The Eurobodalla Writers (EWG) are a Branch of the Fellowship of Australian Writers.

Meetings for 2019

The ‘Writers’ live in the beautiful Eurobodalla Shire of New South Wales and meet at the Doctor Mackay Centre, Page Street, Moruya on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of every month except January.  Meetings start at 10.30am and go to 2.30pm.  Members bring their own lunches but coffee, tea and biscuits are provided.

Members write something for each meeting.  Either fiction, biography or poetry up to 1000 words.  We read our musings to each other and on-the-spot critique is provided – you can ask for feedback on specific areas of your writing.

We also have a night group which meets on the first Tuesday of every month from 6.30 – 8.30 pm. In Broulee/Moruya. If you are writing a novel or wish to develop your writing skills and learn how to critique then this group may be the answer.
