KSP Response to COVID-19

The health and safety of the KSP community is our primary concern.

We are happy to announce that, following a closure period since late March 2020, the KSP Writers' Centre has been approved to re-open to the public by the Western Australian Government and Shire of Mundaring.


Currently staff are busy developing work-safe procedure documents and preparing the Centre with signage and supplies. As soon as this is sorted, KSP will re-open. We will announce on our social media and website.


We do not have a firm reopening date just yet but are hoping to do so in June or July 2020. Please note that there will be new distancing and hygiene requirements, plus an occupancy limit of ten people.

In the meantime, KSP's 2020 competitions remain open, as do applications for 2021 residencies and the 2020 Spring Story Retreat. Fellowship applications will open soon. We are posting resource links, updates and ideas in our monthly newsletter and social media platforms to help keep you all writing and learning, and to enable us to stay connected as a community. 

Admin staff are now primarily working remotely, so may not be able to respond quickly to queries. The best way to contact us is by email at office@kspwriterscentre.com. We will get back to you as soon as possible, and ask for your patience and understanding at this time.

The KSP board of management, staff and volunteers at the Centre hope you stay well and look forward to seeing you in the not-too-distant future.
