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.
