Hobsons Bay is a community with a deep and proud literary history, and vibrant and diverse culture of writing.

Homegrown Hobsons Bay is an innovative program to celebrate and to grow the potential and reach of, writers from Hobsons Bay. Homegrown writers are featured in this database, and their titles are clearly identified within our libraries with the Homegrown branding.

Homegrown Hobsons Bay is also about supporting up-and-coming writers. We are pleased to offer use of our library facilities for your next book launch and can assist you in the planning and promotion of your event.

If you are a published (or soon-to-published) writer with a significant connection to the City of Hobsons Bay we would love to hear from you to discuss how we can work with you further.
