Membership


New writers, established writers and aspiring wannabee writers are welcomed at The Sydney Writers’ Room.

The room is a cauldron where writers of many interests and disciplines mingle.  A quiet space, the room provides a respite from the distractions of home, a ready alternative to the café or the oversubscribed desks of a public library.

From film and television, to novels and poetry, history, journalism and new media. All who labour long at a keyboard agonising over the placement of words can find a home in the Sydney Writers’ Room.

Current members are working on short fiction, long fiction, non-fiction, journalism, scriptwriting, academic theses and poetry.

Applicants do not have to be established writers but ideally should be serious about developing pathways for publication for their work.

There are currently two categories of membership on offer:

Hot-Desk Members
