Welcome to Coffs Harbour Writers’ Group

We meet twice a month and have a newsletter

We also run workshops occasionally and there is a fair bit of collaboration between members.

As aspiring writers we include those who aspire to write for themselves or their families to those who aspire to achieve greater heights with their existing skills and published items.

We have run Grassroots Writers and aim to do so again, covid permitting.

Writing meetings

The monthly meeting is now only for writing.

We sometimes start with a brief discussion on a relevant topic.

That is followed by a silent writing session of about 40 minutes.

We break to get coffees from next door then straight back into reading from our writings from that session or outside it.

The idea came from something Jovanna knew of called Shut Up and Write – you get the picture.

Our next meeting is on May 25 with a 945 start so we’re ready to roll at 10am through to noon in Room 2 of the Coffs Harbour Community Village behind Coles Supermarket.

It’s on the fourth Wednesday of every month unless that is a public holiday.

All welcome, you do not need to be a member to take part. Bring your writing tools – tablet, computer, pen and paper or a stone tablet and chisel.

Social meetings

Social meetings will continue as long as those attending want them to and in whatever form they choose.

At the moment they are held at Shearwater Restaurant on Harbour Drive from 1030 to lunch (optional) on the second Thursday of the month.

As social meetings, the conversation ranges over writing and all the ancillary aspects of life.

This is also a good time to catch up on the news around the writing scene – coming events and reports from recent events.

Come and join us.

The group ranges from a few to 20 or more.

Looking for a writing buddy? This may be where you will find them and it gives you a chance to get a feel for how it will go.


We publish a monthly newsletter that is emailed to members and interested people.
