The Fellowship of Australian Writers, founded in 1928, is an Australia-wide body with branches in each State, the ACT and Northern Territory. Non-political and non-sectarian, it caters for both established writers and those interested in writing. The Tasmanian branch was constituted in 1947.
Our membership includes many of Tasmania’s best-known writers, who are always willing to give newcomers and beginners advice and encouragement.
FAW Tasmania Inc holds regular monthly meetings where members have an opportunity to share or critique work. There is often a guest speaker.
Guests are welcome. An interest in writing is the only requirement. Meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month at 2.00 pm. There is no meeting held in January. Meetings are held in the Boa Vista Room, Friends’ Meeting House, 395 Argyle Street, North Hobart. Click here for more information about membership.
Our newsletters, issued every two months, give news of events, competitions and opportunities. Periodically, FAW Tasmania Inc publishes anthologies of members’ work. Copies of these, as well as books by members are held in the FAW library.
