Hunter Story Creators website launched!

I’ve come to realise more and more the importance of belonging to a writers group. Apart from having a laugh, sharing stories and ideas, each of us are able to contribute valuable life/writing skills to help each other develop our stories. During our discussions and critiquing sessions we agonise over words (hence the amount of time it took to name the group), find missing links, make connections, fire off neurons and create stories. We’d like to share some of our tips so if you’re interested come along to our session at the Newcastle Writers Festival to ‘Make your writing pop!’ Hope to see you there.

The name represents our across-the-Hunter location (not just Newcastle, our members are from Lake Macquarie and the Upper Hunter too), the idea that we don’t write books we tell stories, and that over anything else, we create.

Along with our new name, we have launched a website, where we will re-blog posts from our own websites and let you know about upcoming events and presentations.
