The Writers’ Building , often shortened to just Writers ’, is the secretariat building of the State Government of West Bengal in India.[1] It is located in West Bengal’s capital city of Kolkata. It housed the office of the Chief Minister of West Bengal till 4 October 2013. Now most of the departments has moved out to another building named Nabanna in Howrah on a temporary basis for facilitating renovation of the Writers’.

The Writers’ Building originally served as the office for writers of the British East India Company, hence the name. Designed by Thomas Lyon in 1777, the Writers’ Building has gone through several extensions over the years.
