Fellowship of Australian Writers WA
Supporting Western Australia's writing community
The Four Centres Emerging Writers' Programme at FAWWA!
The Fellowship of Australian Writers, FAWWA is delighted to announce that it will again offer an Emerging Writers’ Programme (EWP) with funding from the Department of Local Government, Sporting and Cultural Industries. The program will be run with assistance from Fremantle Press and in partnership with three other WA writing centres: Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers’ Centre (KSP), The Peter Cowan Writers’ Centre (PCWC) and West Australian Poets Inc (WAPI).
The EWP at FAWWA provides five mentored places and five unmentored places for a period of two years, July 2021 to July 2023. If you have a manuscript in the works, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for to develop it to a publishable standard while simultaneously developing your writing career.
If you would like to apply for a place on the program you need to be a member of the centre to which you are applying. Applications are welcome from adult writers of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs

The Fellowship is proud to be a member of the Copyright Agency and has often benefited from its generous Cultural Fund. The Copyright Agency is an Australian not-for-profit organisation that has been standing up for creators for more than 40 years. They enable the reuse of copyright-protected words and images in return for fair payment to creators. FAWWA recommends that you ensure copyright over your own work as well as looking at what grants are available for writers. To check out the site click here.
FAWWA would like to acknowledge Lotterywest for the generous grant that supported the purchase of equipment and furniture for Mattie Furphy House.
The Four Centres Emerging Writers Program is made possible by a grant from DLGSC.
