The Writers’ Centre is a non-profit, incorporated organisation receiving core funding from Arts NSW. We are member-based with a membership of more than 700 individuals and organisations. The Centre offers a year-round program of workshops, seminars and events as well as the annual Byron Bay Writers Festival.
