Out of the Asylum (known
as OOTA) is a writers’ group that has had close association with the
Fremantle Arts Centre since 1996. The Arts Centre building was once an
asylum, and the group’s name pays homage to that. The idea for a writing
group arose from people who attended the Writing from the Centre
classes, during the time when the State Literature office was located
in the Arts Centre. It was Incorporated in 2005 and since then, writers
have met regularly in the courtyard of the FAC at lunchtimes on
Fridays, and attend classes in poetry and prose on alternating Fridays.
