Additional Information, Terms and Conditions


All participants must book and pay in advance to secure their place. Students who have not enrolled and made payment prior to the course commencement date will not be permitted to attend.

You can enroll in any course here on our website. The NSW Writers’ Centre also accepts phone or in person enrollments. Call (02) 9555 9757. Our office is open Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm, and Saturday mornings from 9am – 1pm. Please be sure to give us your telephone number and email address when booking.

Participation in courses and other professional development opportunities is at the absolute discretion of the NSW Writers’ Centre. All participants are required to follow reasonable instructions given to them by tutors or Centre staff, to show respect to tutors and other course participants and to avoid causing disruption for other participants and/or users of the building.

Cheques and Money Orders

Enrolments by cheque or money order can only be taken by phone. Call the Centre on 9555 9757 to secure your place. However, please be aware that the NSW Writers’ Centre will only hold a place for you one week after the booking date. If cheque, money order or cash is not received by this date, the student’s place in the course is no longer guaranteed. Cheques must be received no later than the Monday before the course starts.

Concession Prices

Concessions are available only to members who hold a valid Seniors, Pension or full-time Student card.

Payment by Installment

Students who are unable to pay their course fee as one sum may be eligible to pay for payment by instalment. Contact the Centre office on (02) 9555 9757 for more information.

Cancellation Policy

Please choose your course carefully. Once your enrollment has been processed we cannot refund (either in full or part of) your course fee. We cannot accept responsibility for changes in your work or personal commitments that prevent your attendance.

In the event that you should wish to withdraw from a course, you must inform the NSW Writers’ Centre at least fourteen days in advance of course commencement to receive a full credit. Withdrawals with at least seven days prior to course commencement will be eligible for a 50% credit.

If the Centre cancels or withdraws a course for whatever reason, you can choose to either receive a credit or be refunded in full.

Food and Drink

The NSW Writers’ Centre provides tea and coffee making facilities. Course participants are advised to bring their own lunch as there are no cafes within close walking distance.

What to Bring

All course participants should bring pen, paper and their lunch. Individual courses may have other requirements. Check the course description for details.

Course Location

Unless otherwise stated, all our courses are held at the NSW Writers’ Centre in Rozelle. For directions to the Centre, including transport information, click here. When you arrive at the Centre, there will be a sign directing you to your room.

The minimum age for enrollment in NSW Writers’ Centre courses is 16, unless otherwise specified. Students aged under 18 wishing to apply for courses other than those specifically designed for young people must provide the Centre with at least two weeks’ notice. Enrollment will be at the discretion of the Centre and cannot be guaranteed.
