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.

  • 2017 marked the Fellowship of Australian Writers – Queensland’s  95 years of writing and our magazine Scope’s 60 years of publication.
  • 2021 will mark the centenary of this distinguished and influential Australian Writers group, setting in motion many large cultural events, leading up to and during our 100 year celebrations.
  • New members are welcome. Please click here for more information.

Great experience for me listening to all the other speakers and interacting with the audience. I hope at least some of those who attended will be inspired to speak next year.
