The Fellowship



membership application with penWhat makes the Fellowship different from other writing organisations? Well it has over 30 branches across the state that allow writers of all different types and levels to get together in the pursuit of writing. If you are interested in joining Australia's oldest writing organisation then there are different options available click here to see if there is a country branch close to you or click here if you live in the Sydney metropolitan area. If none of these options is open to you then why not consider our Isolated Writers Branch, for more details click here.

Writing Resouces

laptopEveryone wants help with their writing. Here we feature helpful articles, advice and useful links to organisations and bodies that will assist all writers in their quest to improve their writing.

Currently you will find an article on Life Writing written by an expert in the field, Dr Rae Luckie. This should prove invaluable to all those entering this year's Walter Stone Award. See below under Competitions.

If you have an organisation you would like to be included as a link to our website then please contact us with the details.
