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.

Membership of the association covers all ages and writing experience – established writers, emerging writers and aspiring writers. There’s a place for you in FAWQ. For a membership form click here FAWQ_Membership_Application

The next meeting is on Saturday 26th April 2014 from 2 pm to 4 pm at
