Join us today

Peninsula Writers’ Club is made of emerging and established writers of all abilities and ages on the Mornington Peninsula. We are a passionate group of writers who gather regularly to write and workshop in company, offering fellowship, feedback and focus. New members are always welcome.

Where and when we meet

We currently meet every few months outside of school holidays on a Tuesday for a dinner party event with guest speakers at Bistro Elba. However availability of speakers sometimes alters this.  In between we have regular Meet Ups to write in a group environment and learn from each other. We actively apply for and investigate grants for writing workshops and forums. You can mosey along to any of events, and can find bookings and registration information below.

We’ve set the standard for putting community and support back into Writers Groups and writers of the Peninsula.

Our happy list of how we help one another

Finding focus

Sharing experiences

Celebrating publishing successes

Encouraging new opportunities

Trouble shooting writers block

Providing mentoring and guidance

Downloading the ‘imposter syndrome’ fears

Connecting the writing community

Why Join? 

Our inclusive community is a tight-knit, supportive group of people who want to build their own writing skills, develop connections, and feel some sense of accountability, writing in company when the going gets tough.

You work through enough doubt and uncertainty when you’re a writer, and place to hang out in locally when you need support and answers sure makes the road easier.

Meet other writers like you in the community

Network and share contact and resources

Get involved in vibrant discussions about developing character and plot

Learn more about improving your writing from fellow writers.

Step away from the desk and blow out the cobwebs

How much does It cost?


Current membership IS free.

We will be moving to a paid membership In 2019. This will be a nominal fee. Watch this space for paid membership benefits.

In the meantime, come on in, turn up to an event, nibble a few pen nibs and clack away at the keyboard in our company.

Enjoy the free ride while we figure fees out (and there’s no ticket inspectors to dodge!)

The Peninsula Writers’ Club is a hive of enthusiasm, support and inspiration. I love meeting up with fellow writers to share ideas, works in progress and our writing journeys. As well as the wonderful authors that the PWC has organised to come and talk to us, or workshop with us, it has also given me an invaluable network of friends and writing enthusiasts that make this business of writing less solitary. I am extremely grateful for the hard work of its volunteers, and also for the encouragement, inspiration and support of all its members. Thank you!
