Authors from our region and the very best teachers of writing and publishing are gathering on the weekend of the 17 – 19 May 2019 for the Grassroots Writers’ Weekend at Coffs Harbour Community Village and Cavanbah Centre, hosted by Coffs Harbour Writers’ Group. Starting on Friday afternoon and finishing on Sunday afternoon, it’s a festival of workshops, hands-on, ‘doing’ sessions, available to everyone from school students to seniors; everyone who loves storytelling​.

The aim of this weekend is to provide affordable, practical workshops for the beginning, the aspiring, ​and the published writer. It’s only $25 for the whole weekend with a barbecue and dinner optional paid extras.

There are sessions on memoir and short story writing , writing for children and young adults, using your travel experiences to write for profit and pleasure, interviewing for and writing personal profiles for magazines and novels, writing and performing poetry, getting a little magic into your creations and researching the facts (for that family memoir or novel) and using online tools. And there are sessions on editing and the final polish, and how to get published, pitching, marketing and social media.

The Grassroots Writers Weekend at the Community Village and Cavanbah Centre 17-19 May 2019 has something for everybody, is affordable and practical.
