Join the Townsville Writers & Publishers Centre

Why wouldn't you want to join?  We're not-for-profit so our fees are extremely reasonable and we have so much to offer:  Five writing groups that meet regularly and often run mini workshops, a monthly newsletter, guest presenters, workshops by guest facilitators, competitions, retreats, and that's not even the best part.

Writing tends to be a lonely, thankless hobby.  It can be hard to find alpha and beta readers, to get valuable feedback on your writing (by someone that actually knows what they're looking for!), and even harder to find answers to questions like, "What's my next step?" or "How do I get published?"

Being part of a like-minded community is the absolute best experience we can offer you.

Interested?  Get the details and become a member. Contact the Secretary,

Membership for 2024 is $40

If you would like to join, please email the Secretary at and she will send you out a membership form. Or come along to the All Genre meeting, which is one of our five writing groups. 


As a not-for-profit organisation, we are run by volunteers.  We love what we do, but we have to manage it around jobs, family, and our own writing careers, and that gets hard sometimes.  If you have a service or some time you feel you could donate, we would be very appreciative.  

Email us at to enquire.


Donations are very welcome!  We are a not-for-profit organisation so any money donated goes back into the organisation - it's the members that benefit! 

Donations can help us cover insurance fees and other overheads. or may go toward paying for flights or presenter fees so we can bring exciting new talent and opportunities into Townsville!

Donations to the TWPC are tax-deductible.

Email us at to enquire.


Are you a published author?  Writing mentor?  Qualified editor?  Do you have a workshop, mentoring program, editing service, or something else that you would like to present to Townsville's writing community?  Send us an email and get in touch!  If you're the right fit for our audience, we'd love to have you!
