Bum Glue Club

"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). .

Please don't bring food in to eat while you're working. We provide some quiet-to-nibbble-on, non-smelly snacks. 


Bum Glue Club works best when we all start writing on time and not interrupted after that. The first 30 mins (From 6.30) is to arrive and set up. If you're more than 5-mins late, you'll be locked out.




Normally 6.45-10pm in St Kilda on the 2nd or 3rd Tuesday of the month. However, we're just taking a short break while we're busy with other projects. We'll be back someime in Winter 2024. 


Please Like our Facebook page to stay up to date with announcements. 


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. We 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.

Such an awesome and inspiring event!

I surprised myself with how much work I got through...

Brilliant writing night. Stuff was done!

I now have more words on the page... I enjoyed putting them there.

It was great to see what oozed out of the recesses of my mind

Fabulous initiative!


So it's a Tuesday night & pleased to report I invoked #bumglueclub this evening...


This is a very fun writers' event that happens every single month in St Kilda.

Your lovely host Katrina Mathers, invites you to sit down, glue your bum to a chair and just

WRITE all the things you've been putting off: your novel, screenplay, poem, etc.
