Hello Writer

Wish you could be more motivated and find more time to write?

You can slog away on your own OR you could set aside two hours a week and join us for a regular Writing Room session - to keep that project moving forward.

Writing Room members get access to a weekly online writing session, our private Facebook group and workshop discounts. The group includes all sorts of writers from playwrights and novelists to screenwriters and bloggers.

The Writing Room opens at 7pm on Zoom every Tuesday....and we write.

"Was great to have some dedicated time to focus on writing and be around other writers." Andrea Kenrick

It doesn't matter what you're working on or what level you're at - you're turning up to write!

Members love what belonging to this writerly group does for their motivation and productivity. Apparently blocking out regular, writing time works!  (See more testimonials below.)

There's no sharing AND if it's not for you, you can easily unsubscribe.

“It was so great to meet people who are just like me -want to get their damn stories out, but struggle for time!” Susy Egneus

"Super-useful! I moved the narrative further and fleshed out some of the detail. I need a bit of help finding motivation to write outside work given that I sit at a screen all day long." Atakohu Middleton

"A weekly write-in is so good to keep the motivation going and build a good sense of belonging to a positive group! I always feel positive and encouraged after a session." - Jill Bradley

"I loved the session it actually gave me time to work (and I will finish) on one of the many half-baked ideas I have lying about the place." - Simone McGregor

"Writing is generally lonely but it was encouraging to see others plugging away on their novels, kids' books or scripts. Time flew and before I knew it, I'd cranked out 873 words." - Yvonne Milroy

"Writing Room is always A+++. Irrespective of how brain dead I might be by 7pm, you all inspire me to haul something creative out of my brain. I am always amazed by what I have to show for that two hours every Tuesday." Robyn Welsh

Can't make every single session?  No problem - it's up to you how often you attend.

How much does it cost?

It costs less than two coffees a week - even less if you choose a 3 or 6 monthly subscription.

What type of writers join The Writing Room?

All kinds - we currently have members working on novels, flash fiction, short stories, screenplays, blogs, creative non-fiction, flash fiction, memoir and plays. 

How Does The Writing Room Work?

We get together on Zoom...

  • The facilitator gets everyone to do a fun, writing prompt to get you all into a creative headspace aka the zone. 
  • We share our writing goal for the evening and then we settle in to write for a couple of hours...
  • No sharing or critiquing - just focused writing time.
