Please note if your payment is not accepted immediately please try again as we have had a high volume of traffic through the payment system thanks to our enthusiastic community. It has meant that occasionally the system cannot process the transactions, a few minutes wait before trying again is usually enough to fix the problem.

Coming soon – the Hobart Writers Festival – 13-15 September 2019!

Applications for the Emerging Tasmanian Aboriginal Writer Award are now open!

In recognition of the deep history and culture of this island, TasWriters acknowledges the Mouheneenner People and the traditional owners and custodians of the land, and we pay our respect to the elders past, present and emerging.
