Welcome to InkSlingers! We’re a social writing group based in central Wellington. We meet every Sunday at a central city location from 12pm – 4pm, and sometimes oftener. We have a Facebook group and Slack for online discussion, and occasionally meet up for non-writing related activities like playing board games.

We started as a group of NaNoWriMo participants who wanted to write year round, and that informs a lot of our approach. Some of us are published, some aspiring, and others creative hobbyists. We all believe that writing can and should be fun. Most of our members take part in the NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo challenges each year.

We are not a critique group, but if you’re looking for writing support and discussion – or just some good company and conversation – then Ink Slingers is the group for you. We’re queer friendly, free of genre snobbery, and lorded over by Quillbert the Literary Hedgehog.

New members are welcome to pop by, but we recommend contacting us via the form below so we can know to look out for you and help you to find us. If you can’t make local write-ins, but would still like to hang out on the Slack channel with us, you can also use the form to request an invite.
