Scribes Writers, Geelong Vic.

We are a small group of experienced writers who meet weekly on Monday mornings at South Barwon Community Centre, Belmont, with the aim of improving our writing skills. We are not a social group, but a working group who share a common love of words and a mutual respect for each other’s work and opinions. Our communal values are creative problem-solving and constructive critiquing, across the various genres.
Anyone wishing to join us should contact us through the group’s website. Please be aware that it is the Policy of the Community Centre that anyone attending will be asked to provide proof of double vaccination.

Scribes Writers hosts two annual open theme literary competitions: one closing on 30th June for poetry, the other closing on September 30th for fictional short story and memoir. Whilst these competitions are open, full details, conditions and entry forms are available under the Prose Competition tab or the Poetry Competition tab above. All competitions are judged on a blind basis with a minimum of two judges. Winners are notified and results posted on the site. The winning entries are published there also, with the authors’ permission.

Our numbers are capped at 10 to give every member a voice, however sometimes vacancies do arise. If you are interested in joining us please apply through the ‘Contact Us’ tab above and we will be in touch.
