The Gold Coast Writers’ Association is a not-for-profit organisation.
Our mission is to encourage and support writers from all genres, age groups, and levels of experience, to grow, learn, and excel in their craft.
Our events offer the opportunity to connect and share with like-minded people in a relaxed environment.
Guest speakers are invited from all genres of writing. Speakers are encouraged to share information about their writing life, discuss their techniques, and launch and sell their books.
We encourage guest speakers to include a mini-workshop for members during their presentation.
Workshops are held at each meeting. These workshops provide informal opportunities for members and visitors to enjoy hands-on writing, listening, and reading activities in small groups.
Visitors are invited to attend meetings (entry fee: members $5, non-members $10).
Membership offers the additional advantages of the informative monthly eWriteabout newsletter, writers’ support groups, competitions, workshops and many other benefits.
Monthly GCWA meetings offer the opportunity to connect and share with like-minded people in a relaxed and friendly environment.
We have workshops to inspire you, and guest speakers to entertain you.
Members share their ideas and experiences, covering most writing genres. Come along and join the Gold Coast Writers’ Association!
