Events

What's Going On?

From Book Chats to Workshops, Festivals to Writers' Groups , our events offerings keep the Society relevant for women writers.

When the pandemic prohibited our ability to gather, we pivoted (yes, that proverbial word) and took our events online. Our virtual events have become a welcome addition to our program that resulted in a boost in our membership.

Whether you’re a Zoom native or not, keep an eye out for the next writing update on this page. We’d love to see you at our next event – virtually or until the time we can meet again in person.

April monthly meeting (in person)

Date: Friday 21 April 2023
Time: 11:00 am
Price: $20.00

Join us for our in-person monthly meeting at Ross House.

This month will have a focus on poetry, join poet Ann M Carson who will help you perfect your poetry writing skills in time to pen an entry to the Kathryn Purnell Poetry Prize.

The ‘narrative’ dimensions of a poem are its unfolding in time, and the ‘lyric’ are the depth charges which allow a reader to take time, out of time, to dwell in the lyric moment. Anne writes her own work at the intersection of these two principal poetic modes and will draw from her own practice of poetic biography, reading from a work in progress George Sand: a poetic auto/biography.

Members are free, non members are welcome, the cost is $20.00.

Location: Ross House Association, Flinders Lane, Melbourne VIC, Australia
