As many aspiring writers will say, writing can be a lonely pursuit and seldom does the time arise for like-minded writers to get together and share their literary thoughts and passions.
That is why the Sunshine Coast Literary Association is hosting a Sit Down & Write Write-a-thon on Saturday, 31 March, to help people assign time to write outside their busy lives and with other writing enthusiasts. SCLA President, Bryan Ward said the Write-a-thon this year was focused on getting everyone started on their entries for the SCLA Writers’ Competition, which closes on April 27, but you can work on any writing project you like.
“Participants will have the chance to brainstorm and use each other for inspiration for their works in progress during the session which will be facilitated by members of the SCLA executive committee,” Bryan said. Spend three hours in the morning or three in the afternoon, or join us for the whole day at the Buderim State School Conference Room, 8 – 42 Main Street, Buderim. The event will begin at 9.30am for the full day and morning sessions or at 12.30pm for the afternoon session.
“The Write-a-thon is not a workshop, but an opportunity for writers to join other writers and… write,” Bryan said. “Whether you are refining a character or plot for your latest novel or crafting a haiku, the Write-a-thon is a great sounding board for ideas,” Bryan said.
Finger food and coffee/tea will be provided and participants are required to bring their own laptop and cable, or pen and paper, and bottled water. The Sunshine Coast Literary Association is a not-for-profit association dedicated to nurturing, showcasing and celebrating literary talent throughout the Sunshine Coast region.
The association offers regular literary workshops, seminars and events, an annual writing competition, and monthly Front Write Up literary performance evenings that provide an opportunity to showcase the talents of its members. Members can take part in the full day for only $10 or $5 for the half day and non-members for $15 for full day or $10 for the half day.
