    Description

    The Literature Centre (formerly Fremantle Children’s Literature Centre) is unique – a place to nurture young people’s interest in reading and writing, using innovative techniques to explore and interpret literature.  Uniquely located within the walls of the Old Fremantle Prison, it is the only centre of its kind in Australia.  

    Established in 1993, the Centre offers a diverse range of student programmes in metropolitan, rural and regional areas of Western Australia. We work with approximately 30,000 students each year, either at the Centre or in schools.  Experienced Education Officers, Authors and Illustrators conduct inspiring and interactive workshops, using a range of original manuscripts, preliminary drawings, and artwork.
