UPDATE: WAT Writers Group is now working remotely from home - unfortunately we're unable to accept new members to the group at this time.
A benefit of WAT membership is that you can now join our Writers Group. Writers Group meets weekly at 6 Washington St, South Hobart and for those outside Hobart, by video-conference. WAT Writers Group is coordinated by ex-movie studio writers executive, Robert Watson. Whether you are new to filmmaking, a bookworm who wonders how novels and plays are turned into screenplays, a filmmaker with an untamed film script, or a pro from any screen field, Writers Group provides a social setting to increase your screen knowledge and skills – and meet other film creatives.
You can come to explore film theory or practise skills that greatly improve (or kick-start) your own screen project. It is your choice to discuss your project or keep your writing entirely confidential. Perhaps you have only an idea, or you are stuck with a screen project in any format or genre. Perhaps this is a good way to meet others or achieve a creative goal. Enjoy the discipline of casual regular meetings with good creative energy. Your Writers Group coordinator Robert Watson is an ex-university screenwriting lecturer, has held elder permission for Aboriginal projects, has worked in Asia, the U.S. and Europe and is a qualified Early Childhood teacher. He comes from Ian Robinson's Melbourne writers group that first introduced Hero/Heroine Journey theory and other screen analysis skills to Australian writers at the Writers Guild conference.
Our ‘cafe society’ Writers Group meets every Monday between 1pm and 2.30pm. You are invited to meet regularly or drop-in when you’re free. If you are interested in joining our Writers Group but can’t meet on Mondays, please let us know your preferred meet-up times.
When: 1-2.30pm every Monday – starting March 16
Where: 6 Washington Street, South Hobart OR by video conference for those outside Hobart
Cost: free for WAT members
