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.

Writing Exercise April 2010 - proposed by Helga

Pretend that you are a volunteer at the Queensland Art Gallery. A group of tourists, who know nothing of Australian art, are asking you to explain to them two dissimilar works that are hanging side by side on the wall:
Use your imagination and tell them anything that springs to mind.   Care by Josephine Muntz-Adams and Ernestine by Sam Fullbrook.

Josephine Muntz-Adam, the artist of ‘Care', was the first female artist to be represented in the Queensland Art Gallery'. The sitter for her painting was most probably her mother.
