The Australasian Association of Writing Programs recognises Australia’s First Nations Peoples as the traditional owners and custodians of this land, the sovereignty of which was never ceded. We offer gratitude to Australia’s original custodians for their ongoing connection to country, culture, and community. We offer respect to their ancestors, elders and families – past, in perpetuity, and present.
This website introduces visitors to the Association, and provides information on writing courses, competitions, conferences and other relevant material.
The Association exists to provide a forum for discussion on all aspects of teaching creative and professional writing as well as current theories on creativity and writing, and to improve the quality of programs across the country. To download a brochure, click here.
