The Eastern Writers Group

Who are we?

The Eastern Writers Group, founded in Australia in 1938, and therefore eighty years old in 2018, promotes community writing – that is, it encourages writers who might have something to say about life, the world or anything else to say it in an environment where other writers can enjoy it.

The group meets on the third Sunday in each month at the Box Hill Neighbourhood House, 47 Kitchener Street, Box Hill South, Victoria, Australia, 3128. To view our meeting place, go here

Meetings are informal gatherings where writers present their works in progress and invite comment from others. There is no joining fee, but a $5 donation is requested each time a member attend a meeting. This is to cover administrative expenses.
