About Us

In 2003, an informal group of writers came together to share an interest in writing. Today, Tropical Writers Inc is a vibrant, not-for-profit writing group that welcomes members who write in all different genres.

Our Mission Statement

The aim of Tropical Writers is to support and promote the craft of writing. We encourage the creative writing talent of each member and welcome all genres of fiction and non-fiction writing. We gather to inspire each other, to critique each other’s work and to respect the unique voice of each writer. Our goal is to share our passion for writing and nurture the creative muse in each of us. Tropical Writers Inc relies on the energy and input of its membership to promote writing and reading in our region.

Our History

Tropical Writers Inc is a not-for-profit organisation based in Cairns, Queensland, which provides a support network for writers and storytellers in the Cairns region. Tropical Writers Inc (TWI) began in 2003 as an initiative of Arts Nexus offering regional writers a forum to meet, called Tropical Expresso. By the end of 2004, the small group was renamed Tropical Writers. The group was incorporated in March 2012.
