About Us

QWCQueensland Writers Centre strives for more Australian writers to have sustainable careers, and to be read and enjoyed throughout the world.


QWC is a not-for-profit cultural enterprise with more than 2000 members, and is the publisher of The Australian Writer’s Marketplace – Australia’s leading resource of the writing and publishing industry. QWC also leads innovation in digital book culture. In 2010, we established if:book Australia, a think-tank to foster engagement by Australian writers, readers and publishers with digital futures.

We provide development and support to beginner writers through to established professionals in Australian writing and publishing. Our members are published authors, emerging writers, children’s authors and illustrators, journalists, editors, agents, publishers, poets, storytellers, playwrights, cultural producers, freelancers, teachers, academics and critics. We encourage connection and creativity through the art and business of writing. We celebrate the importance of books and stories. We help Australian writers to create them and readers to engage with them.
