Who are we?
Writing Interest Group (WIG) is an inclusive, supportive community of writers who love to write, share writing, write collaboratively and publish their writing in the group's blog, Stories @MHS.
WIG welcomes all students who enjoy writing, and is not concerned with any perceived level of expertise. We come together on Fridays to have fun writing together, and we also publish our writing regularly.
Contact captains, Arya Banerjee and Russell Lai, to join or if you have any questions about the club. We are also open to publishing any student work regardless of whether they join WIG.
During 'normal times', WIG meets every Friday at lunchtime in the GLC. Members are welcome to bring their lunch and should probably bring their laptop.
During Covid19 WIG has continued to meet and write in Teams. WIG leaders announce these writing sessions through student channels.
We write. We publish.

From 2019 WIG leaders as they finish school in 2020
These year 12 leaders have continued to interact with WIG and even contributed to writing workshops and publications during their busiest year.
Ari Guha (2019 leader): I really am proud of how far WIG has come along. When I think back on my time at MHS, this will definitely be a highlight of my time here and I'm going to miss the sense of community we've built throughout these past 4 years. I'm super grateful for being in a school that values and encourages this much creativity and I hope I'm lucky enough to experience more opportunities where I can express myself creatively. WIG has some of the brightest minds of Melbourne High, and I hope future cab members can carry on the club's light and nurture these talents. Thankyou all.
Safwan Aziz (2019 Captain):
I’ll drop a little heartfelt message too. WIG was the first club I actually became a member of when I came to MHS and I’m so proud to see how much it’s grown and developed over the years. I have to say, I think it’s one of the most positive and supportive environments in all of MHS and I’m so glad for the opportunity to be part of it. I really do treasure all the memories over the past 4 years, and I really do appreciate how this club became an outlet for my creativity. So thanks everyone for being a part of this with me.
Shiraan Kuganesan (2019 leader): I just wanted to thank Ms Sheko and everyone for the past few years at this amazing club. As a yr 12 it's been great to see the club excel this yr and hope WIG continues to break boundaries in the future.
Thivina Edirisinghe (Year 11 leader): Best of luck for the year 12s for their exams. It’s been great to see them consistently attending the WIG meetings which is just a testament to the great community this club provides.
