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.

I have spent most of my life a native of Brisbane South. After attending a presentation by a Queensland author at the Fairfield Library, I spoke to a staff librarian about my interest in writing. She lost not time in giving me contact details for the Fairfield Writers Group, and this launched my attendance at monthly meetings.

My interest began when family and friends suggested I write down my memories of our family life. Not knowing how to undertake this venture, I decided I needed some genuine assistance and encouragement. The busyness of life meant that I have never had time to cultivate this interest, apart from scientific writing for my work, and I was keen to learn the techniques and art of writing for pleasure and as a hobby.

God willing, the result of my membership would be the writing of my memoirs. I look forward to many happy hours of creativity and the opportunities for self development offered by this wonderful group.
