It's not easy to become a full-time writer and therefore most aspiring writers need some encouragement along the way. Writers' centres are great places to connect with others who share your passion for words, and to take classes that will refine your style.
Melbourne is often described as Australia's cultural capital and there are several very good writers' centres in the city. Which ones have you visited? What kind of classes do they offer? In your opinion which is the best and why?
I recently visited the Writer's Center in the Wheeler's Center building. This is the only Writer's Center that I know about. I quite like the services they provide and the courses they offer. Although I haven't taken any classes yet, but I intend to.
I agree...the Wheelers Centre is absolutely awesome for adults. However, for children, teens and young adults, the 100 Story Building is a fabulous writers centre...just for them. There are all sorts of exciting workshops held there for young people of all ages. There are writing and storytelling workshops, in-term workshops for school groups, after school workshops and exciting school holiday programs. This place is very special...
