Encouraging, supporting and promoting Tasmanian writers and stories.
Welcome to TasWriters, where writers connect for the latest information on Tasmania’s literary scene, get updates on events and find support. We are here to help, whatever your query.
- Supports, develops and promotes Tasmanian writers at all stages of their careers;
- Offers a hub for the dissemination of advice, information and resources, supporting a network of flourishing writers’ groups across the State;
- Develops and strengthens links within and beyond the sector using cooperative programs with other organisations;
- Maintains a database of writers willing to present workshops, courses and talks in schools, TAFE, UTAS, libraries and migrant services.
The first residency was such a success that Posie has agreed to run it again, this time at the end of November. Previous applicants are strongly encouraged to apply (please note that the successful applicants are ineligible for this residency to help ensure this opportunity helps as many writers as possible).

This residency is only available to TasWriters Members who are published writers.
