It is right next to the State Library of Victoria, and home to literary organisations like the Victorian Writers’ Centre, Melbourne Writers Festival, Emerging Writers’ Festival, Express Media, and Australian Poetry.

To celebrate their birthday, the Centre is throwing a series of Galas. The next is on Saturday – ‘On Five. A Gala Night of Storytelling.’

This year the Wheeler Centre in Melbourne is turning five!

Located in Melbourne, the Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas is a hub for Victoria’s literary community. It is right next to the State Library of Victoria, and home to literary organisations like the Victorian Writers’ Centre, Melbourne Writers Festival, Emerging Writers’ Festival, Express Media, and Australian Poetry.

To celebrate their birthday, the Centre is throwing a series of Galas. The next is on Saturday – ‘On Five. A Gala Night of Storytelling.’

‘On Five’ brings together some of Australia’s best writers and storytellers to share their take on ‘five’ – from memories of being five to a personal top five list, or the tale of five minutes that changed a life.

Writers appearing will include the likes of Maxine Beneba Clarke, Tim Flannery, Ellen van Neerven, Stephanie Alexander, Robert Dessaix, Anita Heiss, Mark Colvin, Michael Leunig, Eddie Perfect, Robyn Annear, William McInnes and Les Murray.

It promises to be an exciting night and a fitting celebration. For further information, head to the Wheeler Centre website.

A very happy birthday to the Wheeler Centre, and here’s to many more!
