Melbourne Writers Festival 2012 is a destination for the curiously minded. Running from 23 August to 2 September, British actor, writer and director, Simon Callow, will kick off this year’s festival with a celebration of the bicentenary of Charles Dickens in his Opening Night Keynote address. The festival will also deliver a literary coup, bringing an all-star team from the internationally iconic magazine The New Yorker to Melbourne.
To celebrate this year’s festival, we’re giving away two double passes to any regular event of your choice (subject to availability). Simply email your name and details to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject ‘Melbourne Writers Festival’ by 25 July 2012 for your chance to win!

Are you looking for constructive criticism for your work?
If so perhaps a Writers Bloc group may be what you are looking for!
Writers Bloc are a community of writers that get together across Australia to discuss writing they have been working on.
Essentially, groups are made up of 6-8 people and each month 2 people send writing a week in advance so it can be discussed.
Each writer gets about 45-60 minutes of constructive feedback.
All writing styles are welcome.
Groups are currently being run in Sydney and Melbourne.
