Writers write.

Tomatoes time.

At the Queensland Writers Centre we want our members writing every day.

We understand that it can be hard. Life gets in the way. It’s full of disruptions, competing priorities, and procrastination. The thing is, setting the habit of sitting down and writing every day is the only way to sustain a career as a writer.

We invite you to come to our workshop room, pick a desk, take a seat and write.  Finish over four hours of uninterrupted writing in the home of writing: Queensland Writers Centre at the State Library of Queensland.

Hurry while spaces last!

Terms of Participation

Book only when you are sure you can come.

The State Library's main entranceway opens at 9:00am with the internal doors opening at 10:00am. Please make your way straight up to the Queensland Writers Centre in the State Reference Library on Level 2.

Expectations are that you will arrive at 10:00am to set up and begin writing at 10:15am. The allocated space is available up to 4:00pm, allowing for approximately five hours of writing.

Phones should be switched off or put on silent and stored away in a bag.

Punctuality is important, but latecomers are still welcome. Please enter the room silently when you begin setting up. Don’t address the group until the break, as disruptions can pull your fellow writers out of their flow.

Lunch break is from 12.50pm - 1:30pm.

Pomodoro rules apply. 25-minutes silent work, 5-minutes break and then back at it (with a 15-minute break for every third break).
