West Writers Group (WWG) is a collective of marginalised writers based at FCAC, who are varied by way of race, class, ability,
gender, sexuality and education. They are storytellers from Melbourne’s western suburbs who aim to change the literary
landscape to make it more inclusive and aim to inspire, lead and change the current status quo for the next generation of writers
and WWG members.
The group uses workshops to collectively improve each other’s skills, sharing those skills with writers in their community, and
developing projects. WWG want all kinds of stories to be popularly thought of as Australian stories.
WWG will not be accepting new submissions in 2019. This year will be an opportunity for the cohort to develop their practise.
