Run by writers for writers

Non-profit writer-run shared city workspaces

Inspired by the legendary New York Writers’ Room, the Sydney Writers’ Room has been operating as a non-profit writer-run initiative since 2007. It exists to provide affordable writer-dedicated shared workspaces, now located in the former UTS Law Faculty building in the heart of the CBD.

Over the years, our members have included novelists, journalists, screenwriters, essayists, historians, poets and librettists.

The Sydney Writers’ Room is now a set of adjacent office spaces occupying a quiet wing on the fourth floor of UTS Building 5B 1-59 Quay Street, Haymarket. It is accessible for room members 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
