Welcome to our program of events

QWC offers workshops and events featuring international award winners through to bestselling genre writers, critically acclaimed memoirists and children’s book writers, writing philosophers, highly experienced editors and more. The program caters to a wide range of writing interests and is facilitated by experienced tutors and practitioners.  

The program also offers something for writers at all stages of their career: from beginner through to established levels.  It is notoriously difficult to define these levels, but it is arguably worse to be a beginner in a workshop for established writers or vice-versa. For this reason, we have provided some simple guides to help you determine which QWC sessions are right for you.  If you require further clarification about program suitability, don’t hesitate to contact us.
