The Katharine Susannah Prichard (KSP) Writers’ Centre, affectionately known as KSP or Katharine's Place, is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to encouraging authors and running writing development activities in the former home of celebrated Australian writer, Katharine Susannah Prichard (1883-1969), author of Coonardoo, Working Bullocks and The Goldfields Trilogy.
The KSP Writers’ Centre is located in the beautiful Perth Hills region. It is a community space which is open all year round for visitors to be inspired by a walk through the heritage-listed gardens.
The Centre boasts a premiere Writer-in-Residence program and unique Youth Program. In addition, annual activities include workshops, courses, writing groups, author talks, retreats, fellowships, manuscript assessments, mentoring, competitions, and an annual line-up of fun social events. The current literary program is brought to you with thanks to the substantial support of the Shire of Mundaring.
‘The ambience of the place, and the encouraging attitude of all those concerned with it, can do nothing but further enhance and nurture a writer's career.’ Susan Laura Sullivan, poet, novelist and former KSP Writer-in-Residence
