The WestWords Western Sydney Writers’ Rooms project aims to provide pathways of opportunity for the development of the authentic and articulate voices from the region writers need space to work and to feel themselves to be part of a supportive and well-resourced community.

    • 24/7 access
    • Dedicated space to write
    • Free wi-fi and printing

    • Similar privileges to workshops and events at the other writers’ rooms locations across Western Sydney
    • Access to a closed social media group for members of the writers’ rooms across Western Sydney
