Ridiculously fun
Unashamedly lowbrow
Naarm (Footscray)

BWC was born out of a desire to write with freedom and wild abandon … to write and create with no limitations, judgement, or self-imposed barriers.

We all have the right to suck … in fact, we MUST suck on the way to becoming GOOD!

It takes bravery to keep going when it feels like everything that comes out is utter rubbish … but there’s a reason we call it a writing PRACTICE.

Good writing comes with time and repetition, but it can be a really hard and lonely experience, so we created BWC.

A place for all kinds of writers to be together, try things, make mistakes, learn stuff, and have a massive amount of fun in the process.

BWC is more than a writing club. It’s a place to suck in safety, while growing, stretching yourself to be better, and surrounding yourself with folks who get it.
