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.

Welcome to Fairfield Writers Group

We hope you will stop for a while and browse our site and if you like what you see, please visit us again soon.

Listed below are the guidelines for bringing work to be critiqued on the fourth Saturday of each month.

1. Any length of work may be brought to the meeting. However, for longer pieces (over 1000 words), if you wish to have these critiqued, please buddy up with other novel writers in the group and forward your work electronically to those buddies for preliminary reading/commenting before the next Novel/Short Stories meeting. Alternatively send your piece to everyone who attends this group. Contact Carol annerleyoldie@yahoo.com.au for email addresses.

2. When having a novel excerpt/chapter read for feedback, please include a brief outline of ‘the story so far’.

3. Line numbers are to be included on all pages.

4. Font to be Times New Roman or Arial for easier reading.

To insert line numbers in MS Word go to file, click page setup, then layout, click line numbers, then check the add line numbers box, then check continuous under the numbering heading. Lastly click OK

5. 3 photocopies only of your work for reading individually by members.

NB This group will be split up into small groups of 2 or 3 people only for the critiquing of writings.
