Need a place to write? Writers Victoria has options available for our individual members and for writing groups who have taken out a writing group membership.
Writing groups and organisations
Writers Victoria has an annual allocation of room booking places within the Wheeler Centre, which is a space we share with several other literary organisations.
If you would like to book a meeting room for your writers group, your group will need to become a Writers Victoria member in our writing group / not-for-profit organisation category ($145 for one year).
Currently, this includes the ability to book up to 6 two-hour meetings per year. Plus your group’s representative will receive the usual member benefits of course discounts, one copy of each edition of The Victorian writer magazine and our twice-monthly enews.
Meeting room space is subject to availability and is regulated to one membership category, one room and a set number of meeting room hours per year. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee that your booking will be in a specific room. Please email your meeting room booking requests to [email protected] and we will advise on room availability.
Unused bookings cannot be rolled over into the following year’s membership.
If your meeting takes place out of standard office hours, a representative from your group will need to undertake a security induction with staff from the Wheeler Centre in order to collect a swipe access card for each meeting.
Room bookings can be used for writing meetings or for internal organisation events only.
For bookings for a particular room or for events that involve the general public, tickets (even for free activities), commercial activities or reception duties, you are welcome to book directly through The Wheeler Centre on 9094 7809 or by emailing the Wheeler Centre.
Individual members who need a space to write are able to make use of the Writers Victoria library during business hours, Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm (excludes public holidays). Note that many of the team do hybrid work and work from home regularly. Please contact us before coming to let us know so that we can make sure someone is there to let you in: 9917 5684 or [email protected].
