Writing Circles

Writers' Circles are for members living in isolated areas or those who are unable to attend meetings or classes for any reason. The Circles offer the opportunity to become part of a small group of fellow writers, made up of all ages and levels of experience. The aim of a Writers' Circle is to extend encouragement and assistance, to help develop writing skills or sometimes simply to be a reason to write.


     Each Circle has an editor who collates contributions from each member, attaches a comments sheet and circulates this package around the group. In this way work is read, commented on, shared and returned.


     Groups are not usually more than eight members. 

    There is now also an on-line group who receive their magazine via email. Further groups are envisaged in the future.

 

'In Print' magazine

A monthly newsletter that includes members' achievements, Society news, market openings, an extensive list of competitions, as well as contributions from members.

 Bronze Quill

This annual competition, for members only, runs from July to September, alternating each year between short stories, poetry and articles. A trophy, cash prizes and certificates are awarded to the winner and runners-up at the Bronze Quill Luncheon held in November.

 

Annual Writing Retreat

This provides an opportunity for interaction with fellow writers, as well as attendence to workshops on a variety of topics and/or space for individual writing. Retreats can be for a weekend, or a full week. Country retreats can also be conducted when there is a need.

Website Space

In keeping with our aim to promote women writers, all members have the opportunity to promote their writing or writing services on the SWW,WA website. This can be done either with an entry on the Acknowledgments page or a complete, personalised page.
