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.

Fairfield Writers Group
12th of February 2011

Fairfield Writers Group has grown considerably since last year. This is wonderful and in order to continue to enjoy our writing group a few issues need to be addressed and voted on.

Due to our large group we all tend to get excited and not pay attention to other members. So in order that all members get the most out of our group, please keep these two thoughts in mind.

  • Having a quick personal chat is fine during the meeting but wait till we are at the coffee shop for that more engrossing conversation.
  • Don’t interrupt when someone is speaking, wait for your turn.
The Fairfield Writers Group is a group where we can feel comfortable, relaxed and inspired. It’s a place where we can really flex our writing muscles and therefore become better writers.

In order to achieve this, an agenda has been set up so that every member is aware of issues that will be discussed at the next meeting.

In this meeting we will be voting members to fill vacant position, so please have a think about what you would like to be involved in.
