Looking Ahead

We are looking towards 2018 with fresh vigour, having just received confirmation this week of renewed State Government funding to writingWA for 2018 and 2019.

Our sincere thanks go to Minister Templeman and the staff of his Minsterial Office and Culture and the Arts for maintaining the government's investment in writingWA, and to you, our sector colleagues, for your ongoing support and advocacy.

Best wishes to all for the Christmas and New year season from
the writingWA Team

Please note the writingWA office will be closed from 20 December until 8 January, 2018.
