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

Night group
meetings are in a private venue on the first Monday of every month starting 6th February (6.30-8.30pm) – bookings for all meetings are essential. The group focuses on writing for works towards publication, developing stories & memoirs, group novellas, and building writing experience. If you’re not writing a story and wish to attend the night group, you can choose topics from the day group program or submit your own topic for critique by the members. This group may be the answer if you are writing a novel or wish to develop your writing skills and learn how to critique.

Day group meetings are on the first Wednesday of every month starting the 1st of February at the Red Door Hall (next to Anglican Church) Page St Moruya. Meetings are from 10.30am to 1.30pm. Members bring their own lunches, but coffee, tea and biscuits are provided. Note: email of stories and poems prior as per Committee’s new guidelines (see EWG secretary’s emails for further information).

Members write something for each meeting and email it to members for critique. Either fiction, biography, up to 1000 words, 100-word Drabble, or poetry.  We read our musings to each other, and on-the-spot & emailed critique is provided – you can ask for feedback on specific areas of your writing.

Writing as a visitor on a topic for the Day group is at the discretion of the meeting host. Submitting work to the Night group for critique or critiquing members’ writing is only permitted following membership. EWG membership covers attendance at either or both day and evening groups.
