Due to a range of technical issues recently experienced PCWC is undertaking a major overhaul of our website design and delivery. Information regarding groups, workshops and events is current but everything else is not being updated and links won’t necessarily work. Our new look, and ease of use, will come online during January 2024. If you are looking for membership or any other information please contact us at petercowanwriterscentre@outlook.com  We are very happy to hear from you.

Welcome Writers!

The Peter Cowan Writers Centre Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation focused on providing support and development for beginner, emerging and established creative writers within the northern suburbs and wider Perth writing communities.  It has continued to grow since the Centre began in 1995 and offers a range of writing opportunities for its membership and Perth writers, and further afield to Australian writers via our writing competitions.

For more information about our namesake Peter Cowan, our history and our location in Edith Cowan House, please see the About section.

We are a small community-based writing centre that offers writing groups, workshops and competitions. We do not publish manuscripts or offer a manuscript assessment or manuscript editing service. However, some helpful writing links to writing organisations and professional bodies can be found on our Writing Links & Publishing page here.
Details of Western Australian and Australian Publishing houses can be found here with
information on Manuscript Awards and Mentoring Opportunities here.
You can also follow the Centre on Facebook via our organisational page at: https://facebook.com/pcwcwa
Thank you for visiting our website, and we look forward to welcoming you to a workshop or writing group, or receiving your entries in our writing competitions.
