Introducing LINE BY LINE, a brand new virtual writing club for established, emerging and aspiring storytellers.
Starting October 1, LINE BY LINE will meet virtually at 6pm AEST on the first Thursday of every month. Writers will have the opportunity to share their work and offer feedback to others.
How is this going to work?
We don’t know! It’s early days, and it will evolve as we see what works and what doesn’t.
Okay … But how do you think this is going to work?
Submissions for new pieces (up to 1000 words) will close the Thursday before our meeting. Five pieces will be chosen at random and distributed to the club. During the virtual session, each spotlighted writer will have ten minutes to use as they see fit. They can choose to read their favourite parts, discuss their influences, ask for feedback or troubleshoot … whatever they like. The final ten minutes will be a free-for-all, where others who weren’t spotlighted can discuss their own writing or share what they’re reading for pleasure!
Do I have to attend every session?
Of course not. Nobody’s going to be banned for only showing up when their work is spotlighted, but that isn’t really in the spirit of the club.
Who can join?
Absolutely anyone 13+ can join. While LINE BY LINE is aimed at adults, it will be a safe, welcoming space for teens.
