Writers of the Far South Coast
A writing group for everyone who enjoys putting pen to paper
For information on our next meeting and Extrarodinary General Meeting go to Events
Writers of the Far South Coast (WFSC) are an inclusive, non-profit writers club that has been around since 1981. Our members are from all walks of life, young and old, men and women, published and unpublished, who meet regularly on the 3rd Saturday of each month to support each other’s writing goals.
Volunteer members on the WFSC committee understand the unique hardships of living in a rural area. Their efforts are designed to nurture the talents of local authors and provide reasonably priced, professional development opportunities, closer to home, here on the Far South Coast of NSW, in the Bega Valley Shire.
President: Robert Kulibab
Secretary: Laurel Johnson
Treasurer: Laura Taylor
The monthly meeting is held on the third Saturday of each month at Club Sapphire in Merimbula starting at 11am.
Saturday July 18 the meeting will be "Inspiration where we get it and how we use it."
These mornings are open to everyone, published or unpublished, and provide a great networking opportunity to meet other like-minded writers.
Meetings include writing exercises, mini workshops and giving and receiving critiques of your writing completed in the meeting and also presented as homework.
There are some authors that like to keep their writing close to the chest until their draft is completed. While other authors benefit from feedback and critique throughout their creative process. To meet this need each year we have four dedicated critiquing sessions when writers can receive in depth analysis of their work.
Regardless of your technique, you can always come along to help us reach the critical mass necessary to provide that feedback to those who ask, and to encourage your fellow writers to aim for their goals, whatever they may be – competitions, publication, cathartic reasons or for the fun and enjoyment of writing.
All venues that are chosen for the writers room and workshops are quiet and have disabled access.
Extraordinary general meeting
An Extraordinary General Meeting will be held on Saturday July 25th at Club Sapphire at 11am to discuss the future of the group.
Please attend if you want a say on what happens in the future.
Each year a writing retreat is held in July.
Due to unforeseen circumstances there will be no retreat in 2020.
