Support Groups

The Gold Coast Writers’ Support Groups were established in 1995. The aim was to provide a service to members specifically catering to their writing needs. These groups assist in creative style, artistic voice, positive critique, encouragement and more.

Spaces are limited and it is necessary to be a member and to book with the support group coordinator.
