To encourage local writers and poets to bring their work to fruition, through discussion, education and shared experience. The Beerwah writers group was formed in 2006, by a group of like minded people who wanted to share their experience with writing. New members are welcome and encouraged; a yearly subscription of $5.00 applies.
Several members have published their work and their books are available for sale to the public.
The Bundaberg Writers’ Club was founded to allow people interested in writing to meet, chat, practise their craft, solve problems, and to try out ideas.
Since the club’s establishment, members have been actively involved in the community – presenting literary events like the annual WriteFest, supporting young writers with the YOW awards, taking part in the region’s October CRUSH Festival, and finding as many ways to think and act laterally as we can.
Long Distance Members Welcome: The Club’s long distance members come from Tasmania, NSW, Miriam Vale, Townsville, Murgon, and Central Western Queensland.
Our Aim: To bring together a group of people who have a love of writing and, together, to foster and develop this art
Our members are from diverse backgrounds and age groups. We have poets and short story writers; from beginners to advanced. The majority have joined the club in order to develop their writing skills. Most at present write simply for the joy of writing. A few members have taken their writing a step further by creating bound compilations of their work and also by focusing their creative energy towards entering various literary competitions. One of our members is currently working on her first novel. Another member has already self-published a couple of books of poetry.
Carindale Writers Group was founded in 2000. Since then, writers of all genres have crossed our threshold, including would-be writers and ultimately successful writers (and yes, some of us are still on that journey!). Although many have come and gone, some have been with us from the group’s inception; some arrived just today.
The writing process is not a lonely one when you have the support and encouragement of a long-established writers’ group and when you can share in the knowledge and experience of its members.
The group provides an opportunity for peer-based critique, advancement of your writing skills, and social engagement.
Carindale Writers’ Group also functions as a link to the broader writing community, with constant updates on writing competitions, seminars and workshops.
Our sixth anthology, Encounters, is on sale now.
Catena Collective publishes the digital literary & arts magazine ‘One Page: Brisbane’ (available through our iOS app and our website).
We are a group of creatives who are passionate about words and writing, about ideas and knowledge, about learning and thinking.
We came together in 2013, through the University of Queensland’s postgraduate Writing, Editing, and Publishing program, and launched ‘One Page: Brisbane’ in 2014.
The magazine seeks to encourage and support the publication of new writing from and about our city, Brisbane (Australia). We publish short fiction & poetry, articles & essays, and interviews & reviews, as well as original illustrations and photographs.
Brisbane is an emerging world city, with a vibrant literary culture. Our ambition and intention is to promote the growth of Brisbane’s literary talents, by offering a new platform for publishing their creative work.

An informal group of adult aspiring writers, we meet weekly at Pomona for a couple of hours of fun, relaxation and mind-stretching exercises. A weekly topic is set – this week it’s ‘What I really meant….’ for which we invite a short story, a poem, a comment piece, a reminiscence, whatever you choose, as long as they’re your own words. We start by reading our contribution for that week, and while we don’t actively invite a critique of our work, help and advice are always there if they are sought. After a coffee break, we move into an impromptu session, where we write for a few minutes on a random theme, to free us up from over-editing our thoughts.. Every week is different – you are very welcome to dip your toe in our pool.
A group of like-minded adults who love to write in story or poetic form. The group members enjoy sharing their written work and ideas and seeking out opportunities to develop their craft. These opportunities can include: writing competitions, goes speakers and participating in writing workshops.
