Kids Lit

Do you write or illustrate books for children or young adults? Then this meeting is for you!

Townsville has a lot of hidden children’s writers and Kids Lit encourages any children's writers of all levels to get together and share their experiences and learn from each other. Some members are published writers, some are writing stories for their grandchildren, some want to be published some are happy not to go down that track.

Each meeting has a specific topic that applies to children's books, but also to writers of other genres.

Kids Lit is co facilitated by: Linda Wright and Matt B Lewis.

Meets anytime, anywhere. Looking for me, look for the pink pig


'Pink Pig Pop Up' Event

It's the latest idea to hit Townville. It’s not a class. It’s informal. Write, sit, draw, walk — whatever. You won’t get much warning that it’s on — maybe less than an hour. Missed out! Better luck next time.

If you want to have your name on a ‘text me’ list, text me on 0429115591 with your name and ‘pink pig’.

Facilitator: Lynn Scott-Cumming.



Meets 7pm - 9pm

Usually, we meet every first Wednesday of the month

At Aitkenvale Library Meeting Room


Popular Fiction Group


Popular Fiction is for all writers of general fiction. This group focuses on the craft of writing with dedicated mini workshops on anything from plot structure, character development, editing, and marketing. Join us to learn, assist others, and help your writing career flourish.

Speculative Fiction

We cater for a wide range of genres; from fantasy to science fiction, horror and dystopian, and many more sub genres. If you write in any of these genres, we welcome you. As a group we write short works and publish them in annual anthologies while supporting the solo projects of members regardless of skill level. Our creed is to be supportive, but constructive.​​


Speculative Fiction is facilitated by Terry Mullins.

Meets 10am - 12pm
