Welcome to our community of writers

Writing NSW is the state’s leading provider of services to writers, including courses, seminars and workshops, writing groups, festivals and events, grants and prizes, and information and advice. A not-for-profit organisation formerly known as the NSW Writers’ Centre, we have been providing quality support to the writers of our state since 1991.

It’s devastating that the state’s peak organisation for writers is being defunded in the middle of a global pandemic, says our Chair, Joel Naoum. You can read Joel’s statement and find out how to let the government know your views here.
