I have been fortunate to be present at the last two and found them most informative. My advice to writers attending: bring a notebook and pen!   It is also an inspirational atmosphere with so many creative souls in the same room.

We thoroughly enjoyed listening to the speakers at the 2017 Writers Group Convention. It was fun hearing new ideas and meeting old friends.

Great convention – best yet. Thanks, Gillian. Wendy Swartz 2017

Thanks for pulling that together it was very informative and mad fun! Lynda Grasso 2017

The 2016 Writers Group Convention was an exciting day with a wealth of information from published authors, professional editors and enthusiastic coaches. Here are some of the comments received:

I loved the convention last year, wonderfully organised. I can appreciate the work that goes into it. Unfortunately, I had to skip out on half of it because my daughter was getting an award that afternoon. I was really disappointed to be unable to stay the whole time. Really looking forward to the full experience this year!  Delia Strange    

Thank you for today’s Writers’ Group Convention at Enoggera. I am new to the organised writing scene.  I was unaware of the convention until last week when Patrice Shaw, my editor, flagged it to me. You and your team organised a very enjoyable and useful day. I met many new friends and contacts – and moved a few books at lunchtime. Each presenter’s talk had a distinctive gem or two and, cumulatively, they added up to a very good learning experience. So, thank you and well done. Such a smoothly-run event doesn’t happen by accident.  
My website is I look forward to visiting your website regularly and catching up with you all on future occasions.  Jim Reay

What a great day that was! Thank you so much for organising it all and for having it run so smoothly. It was so good to meet new people and to catch up with some that I haven’t seen for a while. I look forward to meeting you again and, hopefully, to participating either as an on-looker or a speaker, at next year’s convention.

It was great to meet you today and to enjoy the camaraderie of the event.  The day was beautifully organised and drew such a great bunch of people!  Lauren Elise Daniels

It was a pleasure to meet you on Sunday and to attend the convention. I discovered a writing group that meets at the Ashgrove Library every second Thursday and intend to go along for the first time on the 19th of this month. While I am in no way convinced that I have any true writing ability I am excited to go along to at least explore the possibility. Thank you very much for organizing the event. Deirdre Kitrell

The 2015 Writers Group Convention was a great success due to the enthusiasm and support from the Brisbane writing community. A special thank you to the NightWriters writing group for your invaluable assistance on the day.

Our speakers – Kylie Kaden, Tania Joyce, Di Hill and Margie Riley passed on very useful advice, and the representatives from writers groups around Brisbane gave us insights into how their groups assist writers.
