Important Announcement:

We are happy to announce that the KSP Writers' Centre is BACK OPEN to the public, following a closure period since late March due to COVID-19. Most writing groups have now returned to meeting in the Centre - please check here for details. Competitions are open for entries, and the 2021 residency and fellowship programs are open for applications. Retreats are open for bookings.


Please note that there are new distancing and hygiene requirements, plus an occupancy limit of thirteen in the premises and two in the cabins. We are still offering complimentary tea and coffee supplies however we now have a BYO mug policy.


In the meantime, we invite you to enjoy Hello World, an international project where artists throughout the world have submitted art works to share. We hope you enjoy this gesture of goodwill and solidarity from our colleagues around the globe.
