If you live in Melbourne you’ll know about the Wheeler Centre because it’s fabulous.
The Centre opened in February 2010 and is a self-described ‘hub and home for writers and literary organisations’, including the Melbourne Writers’ Festival, Writers Victoria, Emerging Writers’ Festival, Australian Poetry, and the Melbourne branch of PEN International.
The centre hosts events year-round, including the Premier’s Literary Awards, international speakers, book launches, debates, seminars, and performances. And every one of those events seems to sell out because we’re a city that loves writing, magazines and books. I’m not sure how Melbourne survived without it…
The Wheeler Centre kindly allows people to write for their website, too.
