Discovery Writers


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'


Topics


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.
