About Eurobodalla Writers

Eurobodalla Writers (EWG) is a vibrant group who enjoy writing prose, poetry, and short stories. Members range from beginners who haven't written more than correspondence or work reports to published authors. Day and night groups. Come along to a couple of meetings to experience the creativity and writing support that is Eurobodalla Writers.

WFSC’s Winter Writers Retreat

WFSC’s Winter Writers Retreat

20th – 22nd July @ Kianinny Bush Cottages (Kianinny Resort Tathra)

$275 sharing a cabin with another author

https://retreat.writersfsc.org.au

Now in its FOURTH YEAR, if you haven’t been to one yet, it’s your turn to discover the Writer of the Far South Coast’s annual retreat. Get motivated and inspired by mentors and warm up your writing this winter. The combined creativity gathered in this tranquil bush setting is nurtured by removing the daily grind of responsibilities while building a community of like-minded folk over bottomless cups of tea and coffee beside cosy wood fires. At the welcome dinner on Friday night, our mentors will pitch their genres, skills and mentoring style. Join the group led by the mentor that suits your writing best. Two 90-minute sessions on Saturday and Sunday morning are designed to give your writing and inspiration a boost. The rest of your time can be devoted to writing that first draft.

Eurobodalla Writers is happy to share this information – this is a Writer of the Far South Coast event. For all queries about this workshop please go to the attached WFSC website.
