FAWQ_Membership_Application_2012The 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 more information email fawqwrite@gmail.com. Membership application available here FAWQ_Membership_Application_2014

The next meeting is on Saturday 27th September 2014 from 2 pm to 4 pm at The Brisbane City Central Library Community meeting room 266 George Street Brisbane. Special Guest Hugh Lunn


Hugh Lunn

Hugh Lunn is coming to FAWQ! Come along to a special open meeting of FAWQ to hear Queensland icon HUGH LUNN speak on the topic ‘Advice for beginning writers’. Hugh Lunn is one of Australia’s most respected journalists and authors. Reporter Lunn’s awards include three Walkley Awards for journalistic excellence and The Age Book of the Year Award 1985 for Vietnam: A Reporter’s War. After years of encounters with Rupert et al, Hugh gave journalism away and decided to write books instead – luckily for us.
