Curtin Writers Club is a Curtin University student club which supports emerging student writers. We are also the academic club for students studying Creative Writing, Professional Writing and Publishing, Literary and Cultural Studies and Journalism. We welcome all forms of writing. 

Anyone can become a member for $5 or one Curtin Student Guild club voucher.

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 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. You can view writing resources from previous events here.
