Participants are invited to spend a full day or a three-hour session in the morning or afternoon at the Coolum Community Centre at Jack Morgan Park.
SCLA President, Bryan Ward said the write-a-thon provides a creative environment for writers to develop their artistic abilities, share knowledge and to support others.
“This is an ideal opportunity for community members to brainstorm and use get inspired for their own works in progress,” Bryan said.
The Write-a-thon is the SCLA’s contribution to Queensland Writers’ Week, an initiative of the Queensland Writers’ Centre held from 10 to 16 October that encourages everyone with a passion for writing to participate in the event.
The Sit Down & Write Write-a-thon welcomes the expertise of local writers and writing educators, Nike Bourke and Bronwen Cozens, who will be available during the day and to facilitate discussion.
“Whether you be refining a character or plot for your latest novel or crafting a haiku, the write-a-thon is a great sounding board for ideas,” Nike said.
The event will begin at 9.30am for the full day and morning sessions or at 12.30pm for the afternoon session. Finger food and coffee/tea will be provided and participants are required to bring their laptop and cable, pen and paper, and bottled water.
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.
