The Fellowship of Australian Writers - Sutherland Shire
The Festival is proudly brought to you by members of The Fellowship of Australian Writers (FAW) - Sutherland Branch. The FAW was formed in 1928 by a group of prominent Sydney writers. There are now 30 Regional groups in NSW and Fellowships in every other state.
Our aim is to provide a supportive and encouraging environment where local writers can come together to share their writing and learn more about the craft.
We have a diverse membership of both fiction and non-fiction writers, ranging from journalism to poetry, memoir to children's writing.
It doesn't matter how far you have come, whether you are a novice or a professional, whether you're aiming for mainstream publication or self publishing and writing competitions, or you may want to write your life story to pass down to your family, all writers are welcome to join the group. We meet on the last Saturday of each month.
