Workshops & Programs


The Peter Cowan Writers Centre has conducted many workshops and courses in prose, poetry and memoir writing since the Centre was founded over twenty years ago. Our facilitators are all experienced presenters with literary qualifications and/or are published authors. The Centre will be running several workshops this year with details to be announced soon.

PCWC members receive a $10 discount on our workshops, as do members of our sister centres Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers Centre (KSP) and the Fellowship of Australian Writers WA (FAWWA). Our members also receive reciprocal member rates for KSP & FAWWA workshops. To secure your member discount, please quote your current PCWC membership number on the workshop registration form.

We look forward to welcoming you to Edith Cowan House for a Peter Cowan Writers Centre workshop.

Four Centres’ Emerging Writers’ Program

In 2018, the Western Australian Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries announced funding for the establishment of a pilot publishing program to assist emerging writers to develop their manuscripts and author branding skills to achieve publication. Four not-for-profit WA writing centres were selected to participate in the pilot program in partnership with Fremantle Press:

Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers Centre,
Peter Cowan Writers Centre Inc.,
The Fellowship of Australian Writers WA, and
WA Poets Inc.
