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.

The next meeting is on Saturday 26th July 2014 from 2 pm to 4 pm at The Brisbane City Central Library Community meeting room 266 George Street Brisbane
