The Bayside U3A Writers Group

The purpose of this website is to host literary works written by members of the Bayside U3A Writers Group. The Bayside U3A Writers Group meets regularly to share and discuss written works in various genres. There are some 20 members. Since 2013, twenty eight radio plays have been written by writers in the group and performed by local actors. Whether writing, poetry, short stories, novels, radio plays, stage plays or creative messages, there is one thing shared in common by the members of this wonderful group of diverse personalities and talent – an enthusiasm and passion for writing. In 2018, we launched a website (www.armisticetribute.org.au) commemorating  the Armistice Centenary and including World War One and war-themed works by our writers. That site is no longer operational (closing in August 2020) and many of the stories, poems and radio plays have  been transferred to this new site.

We respectfully acknowledge that the Boon wurrung people of the Kulin Nation were the traditional custodians of the land where we meet that now comprises the City of Bayside. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge and uphold their continuing relationship to this land. This acknowledgement also recognises the importance, diversity and strength of Indigenous cultures to the heritage of all Australians.
