About Elwood Writers

Elwood Writers was created in 2007 in Melbourne, and takes its name from the seaside location of the group’s fortnightly meetings. From Australia and the UK, at the moment we are all based in Victoria, Australia. We work across a variety of literary genres and forms, and regularly contribute, collectively and individually, to Vision Australia Radio’s weekly literary program Cover To Cover. Once a year, we host a public reading of a selection of our works.

More information can be found in our individual biographies on this site.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which we live, work and learn, and we pay our respects to all elders past and present.

  1. Hi. I am a filmmaking student trying to reach Barry Lee Thomson to talk about adapting one of this short stories. Can someone help me reach him? I tried the email on his website with no success.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi Guilherme. Thanks for getting in touch. Sorry you’ve been frustrated in your attempts to reach me. I’ve been on a writing residency overseas for the last ten days and didn’t have the usual internet access. But I returned home last night, and I’ll get to your email shortly. All the best, Barry


  2. First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before
    writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Many thanks!

    • What a great question. I have – personally – great issues in this regard. However, I think we (EW) might put our collective heads together and come up with an answer! More soon.
