Did you know, Australia’s first novel was published by Henry Savery in 1831 in Hobart named “Quintus Servinton”?
FAWTAS or the Fellowship of Australian Writers, Tasmania was first incorporated in the early 1900’s to give all writers (established and budding) a common ground to share their ideas, experiences and help one another achieve their lifelong goal of publishing accredited works of art, language, fiction and non-fiction.
From articles and posts on how to become a better writer to guest posts by established authors on introducing comic elements, using real life objects and ideas to produce literature – FAWTAS is your one-stop solution. Anyone can use our archives and services even if one is not from the state.
