Unfortunately, the uncertainty of Victoria’s COVID-19 situation has forced Ballarat Writers to cancel its scheduled monthly members meetings. We had hoped to resume in a limited fashion in July, but it is not felt that this is advisable.

Consequently, a Members Night (substitute) Group Chat via Zoom will be held. Given the cancellation of the July meeting, the Zoom meeting, originally planned for 22 July, will now be held on 29 July.

Please see your newsletter or drop us a line here or on Facebook for details if you don’t have them already.

Write Club

While Racers is once more taking dine-in custom, table seatings are limited to one hour, so it’s not ideal for a physical Write Club. Instead, members are invited to visit the Facebook page on Sundays 2-5pm to share writing time and discussion.

Ballarat Flash

Our monthly members-only flash writing contest is proceeding as usual. Please see the website for details.

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.
