International Writing Tours exclusive to Australian Writers’ Centre

Explore a world of inspiration…

They say the only way to really learn a language is to immerse yourself in its culture. We believe a similar thing applies in the world of writing – by surrounding yourself with awe-inspiring places, you can ignite your imagination and change your writing forever.

Our overseas writing tours are truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, combining two passions – travel and writing. Uniquely, each group is limited to just 12 or 16, allowing your professional writer guide to share continual feedback on your own work as well as their own experiences.

With four inspirational locations on offer, each exclusive tour will open your senses to new sights, sounds, smells and stories. They depart just once per year and they sell out. So don’t delay – begin your life-changing journey today!
