Creative Writing (WriterPals)

Creative Writing (WriterPals) is a discussion group that puts-in-practice – it is not a formal lesson.

We meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month (during school term) at Club Lambton – from 1pm to 2:30 pm.


We are WriterPals – we help each other with Creative Writing.

ComputerPals for Seniors – Newcastle Inc. has a sub-group of members interested in Creative Writing and we are “WriterPals”. We have a lot of fun reading our stories to ‘the others’ and sharing positive critique and generally helping one another. You must be a financial member of ComputerPals.   Interested? You will be very welcome to come, see what we do, and join in the fun.

Or phone: 0478219220

Be patient, wait for the tone. Please leave a message so we can get back to you. (during office hours 9 – 5)

Our challenges are many and varied. You can write on any topic you like. As always, turn your imagination loose and see where it leads you.

Everyone has a story in them – everyone can write !  YES, YOU CAN!

We encourage you to have a go, even if you haven’t tried before.
