About Us

Founded in 1995 in Western Australia, the non-profit organisation, Peter Cowan Writers' Centre (PCWC) began operation as the Northern Writers' Association.

Early in 1998, Edith Cowan University set aside a place for the centre in the newly reconstructed Edith Cowan House (pictured above and right) at its Joondalup campus.


Our Name

The centre is named after Peter Cowan, one of WA's most esteemed writers and academics.

The grandson of Australia's first female parliamentarian, Edith Cowan, he was renowned for his short stories, a tradition perpetuated by the PCWC. He passed away in 2002.


Funding

As a not-for-profit community organisation, PCWC highly values its partnerships with government and non-government funding organisations. These include:

ECU City of Joondalup Lottwest
