About FAW NSW Inc

The Fellowship of Australian Writers was formed in Sydney in 1928 by a group including Mary Gilmore, Steel Rudd and John le Gay Brereton, prominent writers at the time.

It was formed to try and help Australian Writers who were very poorly used at the time.

John Le Gay Brereton was its first President.

The FAW was incorporated on 3 July 1991.

In 2008 it celebrated its 80th birthday and is still developing regional groups to provide an organisation for people who enjoy writing.
