Who we are
Discovery Writers enjoy the written word, sharing insights, humour and drama through stories, memoirs and poems.
What we do
We meet on the last Tuesday of each month (not January) to read and discuss our current works. Each year we choose a writing theme and upskill our knowledge through workshops. Discovery Writers welcomes all who enjoy writing to come and share in our friendship afternoons.
Meetings - Where and When
Miles Franklin room, Hurstville Library, Dora St, Hurstville
1.00 - 3.00pm, last Tuesday of the month (except January)
But wait ... there's more ...
Our 2022 Theme is 'Faces and Places'
Feb: Un/Masked / Beyond
Mar: About Face / Technology
Apr: Losing face / Places in my heart
May: Faces in my life / Wonder
Jun: Face the music / Connections
Jul: Faces of the past / Art
Aug: Competition Month
Sep: Others / What would the world be like if?
Oct: Beauty / Portraits & Passports
Nov: Faces that changed my life / Letters
'Faces and Places' seemed most appropriate for 2022, the year after these life factors were out-of-reach.
Monthly topics are not mandatory but they can give a starting point or an ending to a story.
