Wide Angle membership means you can join our Writers Group for free. Writers Group meets weekly at 6 Washington St, South Hobart and for those outside Hobart, by video-conference. Writers Group is coordinated by ex-movie studio creative executive, Robert Watson. Come and ask any film question you like – and we'll discuss it.
Whether you are new to filmmaking, a bookworm who wonders how novels are turned into screenplays, a filmmaker with an untamed film script, a history/society researcher, or a pro from any screen field, Writers Group provides a casual social setting to increase your screenwriting knowledge and skills, shoot the breeze – and meet other film people. You can come to explore film theory, research, or practise screenwriting skills that improve (or kick-start) your own project. Perhaps you have only an idea, or you are stuck with a project in any format or genre. Bring your laptop or tablet if you plan to use this time to write. It is your choice to discuss your project or keep your writing entirely confidential.
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.
Our ‘cafe society’ Writers Group meets every Monday between 1pm and 2.30pm for the next 6 weeks. You are invited to meet regularly or drop-in when you’re free. RSVP to Wide Angle Tasmania ahead of time and we'll link you in on line via video conference.
