Map showing Michael King Writers' Centre

The Michael King Writers' Centre is the first full writers' facility and literary centre in New Zealand.

The centre is based in the historic Signalman's House on the slopes of Mt Victoria in Devonport and was established to honour the memory of author and historian Michael King. After his death in 2004, a number of his fellow writers and friends formed a trust with the aim of establishing a centre to assist writers and to promote the literary arts in New Zealand.

Following a major renovation of the historic house, the centre was officially opened in May 2007.

Facilities include accommodation for two writers, a writer's studio, an administration base and meeting rooms.
