Fairfield Writers Group is a mix of beginner and experienced writers who meet the second and fourth Saturdays of the month at the Brisbane City Council Library in Fairfield Gardens Shopping Centre, Fairfield road, Fairfield, Queensland. Our passion is writing and we work hard at our craft. Our aim is to encourage, support and help each other to reach new heights in our writing. New members are always made welcome and usually whisked off to the local coffee shop at the end of meetings for sustenance and socialisation with the rest of the crew.

Meeting chaired by Anna

If members choose to attend a single meeting per month the fee is $3.00
If members choose to attend both meetings per month the fee is $4.00 payable at the first meeting.

Set exercise for April
Helga to set the exercise – Carol to send the compendium of exercises to Helga.

Copies of the anthology
There are still a few copies available for purchase.
Helga to bring a few copies to meetings for display and sale.
Lorraine has received an order from NSW through the ISBN database for two copies – this was unexpected but a pleasant surprise.

Lorraine – great news
Lorraine had been so impressed by a particular software that she contacted the company and told them that she had begun a book on how to improve business administration and management based around the use of the software. She was asked to send a summary of her work. The company was so pleased that they requested her to complete the book and they will be publishing it world–wide. – Congratulations, Lorraine!

Guest speaker
Carol has been liaising with Fairfield Library who is arranging a guest speaker for May/June. The Library will fund the event. It will be open to the public and held at Fairfield Library.
The likely topic will be motivational and there may be a workshop element as well.

This will be an opportunity to hand out some flyers publicizing the FWG and to perhaps sell some copies of the anthology.

Next meetings:
27 February – Novel/short story
13 March – Set Exercise

The exercise for March is poetry (any style) – theme: the Reflection in the Mirror.

Work sample for the blog for March will be Anna’s.
