Founded in 1995 in Western Australia, the non-profit organisation, Peter Cowan Writers' Centre (PCWC) began operation as the Northern Writers' Association.

The centre is named after Peter Cowan, one of WA's most esteemed writers and academics.

The grandson of Australia's first female parliamentarian, Edith Cowan, he was renowned for his short stories, a tradition perpetuated by the PCWC. He passed away in 2002.
