The Write Club

The Write Club. It’s more than a club, it’s a community.

The sessions, the group, the courses, the retreats, The “WriteClubbers” are dedicated writers with the same goal in mind: to get published. We are a group of 60+ writers. We share resources, we encourage and motivate one another to achieve word counts, practice pitches to agents/publishers, learn the craft of writing and write to stand out.

Holly Craig developed The Write Club in April 2022 to bring writers from all over the globe together to connect, network and support one another along this long and sometimes lonely endeavour of becoming a published author. During her uni days, Holly realised just how important it was to have a circle of like-minded creatives around her, reading each other’s work, sharing feedback and discussing plots. THIS is why she created The Write Club.

Since April 2022, Holly has run:

  • 7 courses of The Write Club: Write your Novel, Write to Get Published, Rewrite Your Novel, Unique Writing, Writing Sex and Everything Awkward, Revving The Reader, Honest Writing and Common Mistakes.
  • 54 Lessons
  • 2 Masterclasses
  • 3 Retreats
  • Assessed over 1 million words (manuscript assessments)
  • Run 54 sessions of Small Group Mentoring
  • Mentored writers from around the globe.

The Thursday Write Club is held at Mattie Furphy House in Swanbourne each Thursday fortnight. Holly mentors her group over supper, wine and dessert (which is included in the tickets price $25 per session). 6:30pm-8pm. Holly will guide you through the writing process, offer advice, support and set writing goals for you. She will help you through tricky plot problems, read through your work and suggest changes/alternatives. This is a friendly, nurturing environment and writers enjoy switching off from everyday life, immersing themselves in their work with like-minded people there to bounce ideas off. Most writers from The Thursday Write Club have formed close friendships outside of this club.

There is an option of Holly assessing and providing a report on 2000 words of your manuscript each fortnight. You will discuss the work in person or on zoom on the night. This option is $50.

The Write Club (Zoom) are online CLASSES on writing (see above for previous courses). Holly teaches a new course with 6 lessons over a 12-week period. The classes run each Thursday fortnight and are recorded and sent to each attendee. The recording allows for flexibility for writers who can’t attend the zoom sessions. Each lesson is a new topic running for 1.5hr 6pm-7:30pm. Ticket Prices are $25. Holly teaches the topic for 30 minutes and Writeclubbers bring ‘homework’ to the class, incorporating the lesson into their work. During this time, Holly will read the attendees work, provide support and the rest of the Writeclubbers will work on their manuscripts. ***Please email/message/DM Holly to learn about her latest course****
