The Wits Writer’s Club

About

The goal of this webpage is to provide a platform for new and established writers and poets in South Africa and internationally to interact, publish their works and exchange ideas.
 
Description

If you have your own writings you want to read during the session, then the facilitator must be notified so that we can plan it into the programme. We don’t want the sessions to drag without any sense of direction, so for each meeting I will select a facilitator who will prepare a guideline for us. We want you to get the best out of each session!

The facilitators will be from a range of writing disciplines so that we can cover everyone’s particular interest: poetry, short stories, novels, playwright, scriptwriter, song writers, essayist, journalism, etc.

 
General Information

We meet twice every month.
Each session will be led by a writer who will take us through their approach, techniques and general process as a writer.

 
Membership
The Wits Writer’s Club is for anyone (Witsie or not) who wants to work on their writing.
If you think that writing is a critical skill that needs to be nurtured and developed, then this platform is for you. Come and share your writing and ideas with us!
