The Fellowship of Australian Writers Queensland, or FAWQ, is and always has been a significant force in Queensland’s cultural life. It was at the forefront of lobbying for a Cultural Centre in Brisbane, worked tirelessly to establish the Queensland Writers Centre and was closely involved in the  planning and conduct of the annual Writers Convention, which evolved into the Warana Writers Week and is now the Brisbane Writers Festival.

One of the most rewarding passtimes you can take up as a writer (Apart from writing) is to join a Writers’ Group.

A Writers’ Group, as well as being a fount of information and ideas, is a chance to communicate with like-minded creatives and find a group of helpful friends who will likely find your skills and experiences helpful as well.
