Guidelines for Randwick Writers’ Group

Our Randwick Writers’ Group has the following simple guidelines:

  • Numbers are limited to five, so that critiqueing is detailed and resiprocal.
  • Most of us are working on a novel or memoir, rather than short stories or poems.
  • We hold fortnightly meetings of two and a half hours, allowing each writer time to give and receive feedbback. One of us is timekeeper, dividing time equally according to how many are present.
  • We rotate venues from house to house as convenient – giving us a private and friendly environment.
  • Word limits of excerpts max 3000 are submitted by the Monday before the meeting, which is held every second Wednesday morning. Submissions can be online, or on hard copy.
  • if desired (and if time) we read aloud one or two pages.
  • We keep feedback constructive, starting with a global review, then a more detailed look atwhat works and what doesn’t,  finishing with  positive suggestions on how to improve our writing.

One thought on “Guidelines for Randwick Writers’ Group”

  1. This group has enabled me to write, under the watchful eyes of the fantastic editors in the group, 60,000 words of a novel “Karrana”.
