Curtin Writers Club won Best New Club in 2017 and has consistently scored a place in Curtin Student Guild's annual Club Mega Challenge.
Membership gives you the opportunity to publish your writing on our website and in our annual literary print publication Coze Journal, performance opportunities at our poetry slams and other events, discounted access to our ticketed events and access to our member-exclusive Facebook group and Discord server where we share local writing events and publishing opportunities. Publishing your work via our website or Coze Journal is a great way to gain experience and confidence as well as knowledge of the editing and publishing process. You can also add this information to your resume and LinkedIn which will help you be accepted for other publications.
Coze Journal is Curtin Writers Club’s annual literary print publication, which collects writing by club members. Coze Journal is the only Curtin University publication which is open to all students and all forms of writing.
Our events include regular meetups, poetry events, Coze Workshops and social events like a Quiz Night because friendship and community are important for writers. The meetups include sharing writing and editing, hanging out with other members and playing games. They’re a great opportunity to make friends, gain valuable feedback and learn about writing in a safe, supportive environment. Our Poetry Slam and Open Mic event is a great opportunity to gain performance experience especially if you've never written or performed poetry before. A Poetry Workshop is held prior to the slam and taught by an established local performance poet.
You can contact us in various ways, like us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram, connect on LinkedIn and if you have any questions, comments, etc., don't hesitate to get in touch.
Membership costs $5 or you can use one of your free guild vouchers. You can sign up via our website or at any of our events. The club is not-for-profit so all money goes toward catering, venue hire and printing costs.
The best part of our club is the friendship and community. Many members have told us they felt welcomed from the start and met the majority of their friends at university through the club. Clubs are a great way to meet people who share common interests and regularly hang out together.
Curtin Writers Club respectfully acknowledges the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work, the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation. We wish to acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We also acknowledge the traditional custodians of the various lands on which we are all located. This is stolen land and sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respects to elders past and present.
