In April 2015, the MGallery Collection of nine hotels in Australia announced a literary collaboration with The Wheeler Centre, the cornerstone of Australia's literary activity.
'The MGallery Literary Collection with The Wheeler Centre' brings a breath of literary elegance to each hotel in the MGallery Collection that already evoke their own memorable story which can be experienced through the hotel's unique characteristics.
The Wheeler Centre drives the development and celebration of literature, fostering broad public engagement in books, writing and ideas. Through The Wheeler Centre, Australian writers will be introduced to the MGallery Collection and take up residence in one of the hotels for three nights. The writer will then create an exclusive short story inspired by their stay experience.
A Literary Collection of short stories will then be published into an edition de luxe, and released as an epilogue to the collaboration, exclusively for all MGallery Collection hotels in Australia.
As part of the collaboration, literature enthusiasts are invited to share in this experience at an 'In Conversation' event with the writer, where a lively discussion should be expected, accompanied by fine wine and delicious food.
