When writers work together, something magical happens, and Writers SA's Work Space is back in October! Work Space is a digital place to get together with other writers and just write. Over the course of a day, we'll dig deep to hit those word count goals. Whether you're planning to write a novel in a month or get a neglected creative project back on track, this day is designed for you to carve out some hardcore writing time.

Crafted for writers of all genres and forms, our multi-purpose co-working day is for you and your writing.


Participants will:

  • Spend a full day writing
  • Bask in the collective inspiration of other writers
  • Get problem solving advice with group brainstorming
  • Bust writers block with creative exercises.

Led by Writers SA Director and poet Jessica Alice.
