Write Night

Tuesday June 30, 2020
18:00 - 20:00
  • This event has passed.

This event will be taking place in-person at the Centre for Stories. In order to ensure that social distancing requirements are met, capacity is limited to 10 people. Please purchase your ticket ASAP to avoid missing out!


Do you struggle to carve out distraction free writing time? Are you looking for a safe group environment to work on your writing? Would you like to meet other writers in your community? Then this group is for you! Our aim is to facilitate two forty minute writing blocks, distraction free, with prompts for those who need them. You may not always be happy with what you write during this time (and be honest, who ever really is at first) but your word count will increase! This is your time, and your safe space. Come and write with us every fortnight on a Tuesday in the beautiful, historic setting that is the Centre for Stories in Northbridge and watch your project take shape.

  • 6pm – 6.15pm Warm up exercises
  • 6.20pm –7pm First writing block
  • 7pm –7.15pm Dinner and discussion break (BYO food or use the time some other way – writers only participating in the second block should arrive during this time)
  • 7.20pm – 8pm Second writing block

Tickets are $5 per person. Please bring your own laptops or pen and paper to work on.

Missed out on a ticket?  Email christopher.karsten@gmail.com to go on the waitlist. Please include ‘Write Night’ in your subject line.
