Creative Writing

We have a creative writing group that meets 9.00 am – 11.00 am every Friday at CQU, Ooralea and you’ll learn all the ins and outs of writing. Members have, in the past, had books published. We are a self-help group and do not have actual tutors.


Our last year was very exciting with a few changes in membership due to commitments and moving to another location. This means that we have plenty of room for those interested in enjoying the world of words by writing fiction or fact poetry or prose, and taking part in interesting exercises with words. There are no boundaries but we do draw the line at inappropriate
submissions. We are a lively group who enjoy each other’s company and a cuppa and biscuit . Two hours from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on a Friday just disappears as we enjoy transporting ourselves into the writers world. We are lucky to have the conference room at the CQ University Library at Ooralea for our group again this year. Our first writers Challenge for our first meeting on Feb 7th is Bushfire or A Christmas gift or both either in story or poetry style. In light of the current horrendous events that have happened in Australia, with bushfires decimating our land, killing our native wildlife and depriving some families of loved ones, not to mention
the graphic news reports, there should be enough material to gather and a potential of amazingly descriptive words and emotion to put into this subject. We are also using email to have absent members submit their stories, which will be read out at the meeting, thus ensuring ongoing contact and contributing to the morning. Please stop in at our table an see some of the work done by our members, at the come and try it day, very diverse and everyone has a different way of relating the subject to you, the reader. We are hoping for some new members, but it is not quantity we need it is an outlet for those who have always had a yearning to write. There is no judgement, just encouragement and an open door to all that can be done
through words.
