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.

Jan 8 at 9.30am at the Fairfield Library

Action note: Please email your Precise and Letter to Lorraine.

  In this meeting the following will be discussed and actioned:

1.  Finalise the list of participants in our Anthology project and, from that, calculate the word count for each participant.
That means that if you haven't yet submitted a Precise and letter requesting inclusion of your proposed story,
you should do so on Jan. 8. You must also pay your deposit if you haven't yet done so.

2.  Review any new or revised Precise submissions.

3.  Discuss any issues members have with using the template and reach agreement on any issues of formatting etc.

4.  Discuss the logistics for future meetings and exchanging drafts with 'buddies' and editors. (e.g. Do we want to be bringing multiple copies of an entire story to meetings.
(It could be a lot of printing, as some stories might run to over 20 pages!!!). Discuss ideas for Anthology website/blog to hopefully help with issues of logistics.

5.  Allow anyone who needs help with their first draft to raise questions, ask for help, etc.

6.  Allow time for discussion of any other business that any group member might wish to introduce (including the cover design if Helga wishes to progress discussion at this time.)
