The Southern Highlands Branch of the Fellowship of Australian Writers (FAWSH) is a non-profit organisation committed to supporting local writers. Their parent organisation is the Fellowship of Australian Writers. They meet on the second Saturday of each month (except January) from 10am to 1pm at Welby Hall and welcome new members. Every month they flex their writing muscles with some fun exercises, recitations and sometimes a guest speaker. They support members with all genres and have informal specialist groups for poetry and prose.
