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.

Minutes of Meeting for Novel/Short Stories Group 27th February 2010

Present: Helga, Findlay, Lorraine, Carol

Apologies: Anna, Yolanda

Although the meeting was small in numbers today, we were big on enthusiasm and had a great time with helpful feedback given and writing problems resolved. Helga, Lorraine and Findlay are progressing well with their novels and I am steadily working towards the completion of my children’s book.

Afterwards it was coffee and conversation at our usual venue

Motto/Slogan Competition:Please find attached the entry form. I hope you will all decide to participate. This is the first time FWG has run a competition, so let’s make it a successful one and see what we can come up with. The winning motto/slogan will appear wherever our logo is shown e.g. letterhead, bookmarks, flyers, posters etc. I’m sure it will be included whenever we publish another anthology too.

Monthly Newsletter:
As of March there will be only one newsletter emailed out, with minutes of both the Exercises Group and the Novel/Short Stories Group meetings included. This will be sent to you after the meeting on the fourth Saturday of each month.

In the meantime, anything that requires your immediate attention will be emailed to you in the usual manner.

Submissions to Blog FWG’s:

As you know, everyone is more than welcome to submit something to our blog. I’m always looking for ‘writing things’ to post. Your Short Stories, poems, articles on writing plus good writing sites or anything you think maybe of interest to other members would be most welcome. Just remember – don’t send in anything that you intend to submit to a publisher. As I’ve mentioned before, I believe publishers have issues with work already published on the Internet.

Please send your submissions to me at annerleyoldie@yahoo.com.au

March Meeting Dates:

Exercises Group – 13th March 2010
Novel/Short Stories Group – 27th March 2010

Until then, happy writing everyone.
