At the Australian Writers’ Centre, we’re always looking at innovative ways to help you succeed in your writing goals. That’s why, as well as our ever-growing list of world-class online courses, we also offer a range of special events throughout the year.

Some of these events are completely free, including our Creative Coaching online sessions (exclusively for AWC graduates) and our ever-popular monthly Furious Fiction competition. Others include community meetups, online events and a range of in-person creative and freelance writing weekend workshops.

Numbers are often limited for these special events, so we always recommend booking early to secure your spot. We hope you’ll join us for an event very soon!
