Woodcroft Writers is an informal and friendly group of writers who meet at the Woodcroft/Morphett Vale Neighbourhood Centre at 175 Bains Road, Morphett Vale, South Australia 5162.
We meet each Tuesday between 12.30 pm and 3 pm* during school terms. The cost is $5 per week, but your first visit is free.
Our group includes writers of poetry, short stories, plays and novels, and members have a range of experiences and goals. Some of us just enjoy writing for fun and self-expression, while others are aiming for publication or have already been published.
The group has an informal structure. We read our writings aloud, talk about writing, publishing, competitions, and anything else we fancy. We set topics (see the list in our archives) each week, but people are free to write on anything they like — the topics are starting points for those who want them. We also do a fun speed writing exercise each week to get our creative juices flowing. The main things we have in common are a love of writing and reading, and a desire to have fun!
We are always interested in meeting new writers, both beginners and those with experience, so if you’re interested, please contact us or just come along.
The group began its life in 2003 and was run from 2005 by Eileen White. Eileen has now suspended her leadership of the group due to family commitments, and from September 2020 Sue Scott has bravely assumed the reins.
*Please note the new time. The meetings have been lengthened (as of Feb 2021) because the number of members has increased.
