Sydney School of Arts & Humanities

Sydney School of Arts & Humanities (SSOA) is a reading and writing venture aimed at nurturing purpose, pleasure and playfulness in writing, reading and spiritual inquiry. Our purpose is two-fold:

1. To organise writers’ meet ups & conduct creative writing and memoir classes, along with book coaching and author mentoring

2. To publish the completed work of members and students.

The School brings together researchers and writers whose interests span the arts, human relationship, the ecology of nature, the built environment, and innovative ideas in the study of spirituality, society and politics.

Our publications range from novels, memoir and short story to poetry and the essay form. Individual writers and members of writing groups are encouraged to offer submissions for publishing consideration by our peer panels.

Creative Writing Meet Ups

Creative Writing Meet Ups have resumed for 2019 (Tuesdays 6 pm or Fridays 2 pm) and Memoir Group OMG! (Tuesdays 10.30 am).

We meet in a large open office space made available through the City of Sydney’s Short Term Creative Tenancy Program. We’re easy to find – located at 15-17 Argyle Place, Millers Point, The Rocks. Just $15 to attend a meet up. Contact us on 0432 289 311 or enquiry@ssoa.com.au
