We’re sorry to say that, due to the COVID-19 crisis, Ballarat Writers will not be holding its monthly meetings as normal. The committee is sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience this may cause while we wait for this storm to pass.
However, there is the option to join a Members Night (substitute) Group Chat via Skype!
The first would be on Wednesday April 29 from 7pm, as it seems unlikely we will be able to reconvene at our regular venue, the Bunch of Grapes hotel. Please email Brooke at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to take part.
With get-togethers off the table for the time being, members are invited to visit the Facebook page on Sundays 2-5pm to share writing time and discussion.
We also are considering holding meetings through Zoom. Please let us know if a Zoom catch-up is something that interests you
Our monthly members-only flash writing contest is open for entries in all genres. This month, the prompt is to begin works, to 150 words, with the words “The last thing I expected was…”.
Words Out Loud
Our friends at Words Out Loud are looking for contributions to a podcast in lieu of their monthly spoken word events. Details at the website.
Tuning in from home
We also have a list of online events and opportunities to engage with the writing community. Please let us know if you’ve come across other great resources.
