The Otago Writers’ Network was created by Kath Beattie’s Writing Group, a collection of writers based in Dunedin, UNESCO City of Literature, who have been writing together since 1993.

Most writers benefit from being a member of a writing group, but groups in Otago are few and far between. We hope to change that by helping writers to create new groups that cater to their specific needs.

On our members’ page we share our work and via links to our radio series, Charlie's Angels, twenty four years of writing together, tell you how we have benefited from being part of a writing group.

From our resources page you can make contact with existing groups and discover how we can help you to create a group of your own.
