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 theĀ  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 more information email fawqwrite@gmail.com. Membership application available here FAWQ_Membership_Application_2014

The next meeting is the AGM on Saturday 28th February 2015 from 2 pm to 4 pm at The Brisbane City Central Library Community meeting room 266 George Street Brisbane.
