The Booranga Writers’ Centre was established with the aim of serving and promoting the interests of local writers. The group has been active in the Wagga region and surrounds for the past twenty-six years.

Booranga serves its members and the local community in a number of ways. Firstly it organises well known writers to come and stay at the Booranga Writers’ Flat (attached to the Centre) and during their time there they give readings, workshops, and often closely mentor chosen local writers. Secondly, it publishes the annual anthology fourW, which brings together new poetry and prose from local writers, as well as writers from across Australia and the world. Finally, it facilitates writers passing through the region with venues and support for book launches and readings.
