West Writers Group is a collective of marginalised writers based in Melbourne’s Western Suburbs and is hosted by Footscray Community Arts Centre. Each member is varied by way of race, class, ability, gender, sexuality and education. They are storytellers who aim to decolonise space and dismantle patriarchal systems, and who are changing the literary landscape to make it more inclusive. West Writers Group is interested in hearing from publishers and arts organisations to discuss future projects they can collaborate on.
