Bum Glue Club

Next sessions available

"I started Bum Glue Club - because I needed to make an appointment with myself to dedicate time to write - which I knew I'd cancel - unless others were relying on me to make an appointment for them to do the same."

If you never find the time to write.

Come to Bum Glue Club.

And write. (Anything). .

While COVID-19 is an issue, we've been taking Bum Glue online, however once things settle, we will have limited spaces available in St Kilda. Note that event plans are prone to change, so please like the Facebook page for the most up to date details, and check the corresponding event link whenever we're online.


Interested in hosting a Bum Glue session of your own? Email to be sent some guidelines. You're welcome and we encourage you to. The more glued bums, the merrier.




The first rule of Bum Glue Club, is you have to write. You don't have to share what you're working on, but you are free to if it helps. Anyone who contributes to an idea, must give permission for the originator to use that idea. I only ask people respect confidentiality, and also give thanks, by way of a credit to #BumGlueClub if something gets made as a result.


We've already had many success stories - all kinds of works made, funded, presented or published.
