The Pacific Writing Forum (PWF) was set up in 1997 as a unit within the Department of Literature and Language at the University of the South Pacific (USP) Laucala campus in Suva, Fiji. USP played a seminal role in the genesis, encouragement and development of Pacific literature in the 1970s and 1980s when many of the writers were staff or students at the Suva campus. The PWF is envisaged as a means by which USP can resume and enhance its rightful leadership role in the field.
The PWF promotes, encourages and publishes writing and research by Pacific people on Pacific literature and languages, Pacific orature and story-telling, Pacific children’s literature and Pacific journalism. The PWF promotes both Anglophone and Francophone Pacific writing and writing in Pacific vernaculars.
