The NT Writers’ Centre has a small library that members can use. The bulk of our collection is located in our Darwin office (Harbour View Plaza), but there is also a smaller collection at our Alice Springs Office at Red Hot Arts Centre.

Resources include:

  • Books by NT authors
  • Poetry anthologies
  • Australian literary journals
  • Publishing industry references
  • ‘How to’ books on all aspects of writing

It’s always best to ring before you drop in, just in case the office is unattended. Materials can be accessed and borrowed by members for up to three weeks.
