‘Writers SA has been hugely instrumental in the development of my career. During my early years as an emerging writer, the centre enabled my introduction to South Australia’s literary community through the various events and workshops it held. The importance of this should not be underestimated. Many other South Australian writers – particularly those in rural areas – have since spoken to me about how encouraging and supportive they find this link to a writing community.’

– Hannah Kent, author Burial Rites and The Good People.
