Brisbane children's writers and illustrators group
If you would like to connect with children’s writers at various stages of their writing careers, Write Links is for you.
Write Links was formed in 2013 to encourage and assist children’s writers as identified by both SCBWI Queensland (a Chapter of the international Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) and Book Links. The group is administered by Book Links Queensland Inc.
Write Links coordinators Sam Sochacka and Yvonne Mes are assisted by: Jacqui Halpin, Melanie Hill, Renee Hills, Andrew King and Rebecca Sheraton.
Write Links is a writers' group for beginning and emerging children’s writers and/or illustrators living in Brisbane and the surrounding area.
Members network, share information, critique each other’s work, motivate and cheer each other on in working towards achieving personal writing goals. A variety of professional development sessions from ‘social media for authors’ to ‘how to write the perfect pitch’ take place each month.
Write Links also has an active online Facebook group.
There are several critique groups: picture book, junior fiction and young adult.
We accept new members who are either children’s writers and/or illustrators from in and around Brisbane who would like to attend meetings on a regular basis. New members are asked to complete a short profile before being admitted to the group.
Members can be unpublished, published or self-published.
Introductions and networking.
Critiques and small group networking sessions.
The group meets the first Saturday of the month at the Queensland Writers Centre, at the State Library of Queensland - although the day, time or location may vary. (See schedule).
