If you wish to be a writer write. What’s stopping you?

Becoming a writer begins with you.

Many of us dream of becoming a writer. We plan in our head for the time there’ll be have enough time to write that novel or memoir, or even just a letter to the editor. We may be time poor and never get around to actually doing any writing. We can’t just plan it – we have to do it.

So, if you’ve been dreaming but not putting those dreams into action why not begin now with Umoja Writing Competition? Challenge yourself to complete 1,000 words on the theme, peace. Once you’ve set and completed that challenge (and helped a worthy charity along the way) you can then begin to call yourself a writer. Yes, writers do plan in their head, but they also take notes every day, jotting down those ideas with words on paper or keyboard, not just in their own mind, never to be read.

It doesn’t matter how you begin as long as you do. If you wish to be a writer write. It’s as simple as that.

If you have little confidence about your writing you can start with Umoja Writing Competition. Then once you’ve assessed your skills you could join one of the many writing centres around Australia. These small groups supported us last year Stanthorpe Writers Group and Boroondara Writers Group.

For bigger centers:

Join a group in your local area to build an enduring network with like-minded people who can encourage your writing skills. You can also join our Facebook community for tips and writing quotes to keep you inspired. If you have a writers group that you would like mentioned on our page please tell your members about our competition and contact us to let us know you have and then we’ll add your link as well.
