For over 50 years, the Society of Women Writers Victoria (SWWV) has supported women writers at every stage of their career. We welcome new and emerging writers, those who write for fun and professionals who write for a living.
At our monthly meetings we invite speakers to present talks and workshops on various aspects of writing and publishing. As part of our regular programme we select speakers who can educate, inform and inspire.
We offer various Writers' Groups
, Book Chats
for our members.
We send out a monthly newsletter with interesting articles, members’ news and achievements, and information on events. Members are encouraged to contribute to the newsletter.
Each year, members also have the opportunity to be published in Sparx
The Society president sends out a weekly email to keep our members updated on the writing and publishing industry. The email also contains book reviews and examples of members’ work.
A committee of volunteers develops the Society’s annual program. The committee works with the broader membership to run interesting meetings and workshops.
If you would like to get involved as a volunteer, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us
