WestWords Western Sydney Writers’ Rooms
Western Sydney is a big place. And 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 part of a supportive and well-resourced community. We recognise that need, and in response WestWords is proud to announce the launch of three new Writers’ Rooms spanning Western Sydney, located in Campbelltown (Wedderburn), Katoomba and Parramatta.

THE BENEFITS
For less than a cup of coffee a day, Writers’ Room membership includes the benefits of:

  • 24/7 access
  • Dedicated space to write
  • Free wi-fi
  • A discounted rate for showcase events with guest writers and open mic sessions
  • A discounted rate for writing workshops (held every 6-8 weeks)
  • 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
  • WestWords as a resource for accessing additional services including, for example, editorial and publication advice

Writing Workshops
Every 6-8 weeks each writers’ room will host a day-long workshop with an experienced writer. Cost per workshop is: Full day (6hr) $30 member, $50 for non-members; Half day (3hr) $22.50 member, $35 for non-members. You will need to book in for each event via the WestWords website.

Events
Open to the general public, each event would showcase a guest writer with members and non-members invited to speak at an open mic session. Cost per session is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. You will need to book in for each event via the WestWords website.

We are currently offering a limited earlybird special on membership, offering two months of membership at the rate of one month. You can select the date on which you want your membership to commence, and which writers’ room you want to become a member of on the top right of this page.
