check if directory is writable in a portable way

How should I check if I can create files in a directory?
I tried to simply check if the directory is writeable with this function:
"""Return true if the file is writable from the current user
return os.access(name, os.W_OK)
but that doesn't work at all on Windows, because for example if I create
a new directory
and do os.access(dirpath, os.W_OK) it returns false, even if I can
create files inside without problems.
So maybe the only solution that works is something like
would it make sense?
