The Wheeler Centre is in Little Lonsdale Street, adjoining the State Library of Victoria (SLV). The Wheeler Center provides services for writers. Check the schedule to find out what's on at the centre. You may find something that interests you, you may not.

If you enjoy keeping up with new writing and public discussion of ideas (political, cultural, etc.), get to know the Wheeler Centre. It offers a terrific program, most events on weekdays at lunch-time and in the early evenings. There are author interviews, talks, debates, panels,...More
