Celebrate the power of words with Booranga
The Booranga Writers' Centre was established with the aim of serving and promoting the interests of local writers. The group has been active in the Wagga region and surrounds for the past twenty-four years.
Booranga serves its members and the local community in a number of ways. Firstly, we organise well known writers to come and stay at the Booranga Writers' Flat (attached to the Centre) and during their time here they give readings, workshops, and often closely mentor chosen local writers. Secondly, we publish the annual anthology fourW, which brings together new poetry and prose from local writers, as well as writers from across Australia and the world. Finally, we facilitate writers passing through the region with venues and support for book-launches and readings.
Membership entitles you to a free copy of fourW, a newsletter every 2 months, as well as discounts at readings, workshops, and local bookshops. Only members are eligible to apply for mentorship with visiting writers. Contact Booranga for further details or an application form.
