Queensland Writers We Need You

Our friends in Townsville and western Queensland are doing it tough right now, but being Queenslanders we’re always ready to lend a hand.

Like in 2011 and 2013, the Queensland Writers Centre has gathered the writing community to our fellow Queenslanders in need.

Previously we’ve asked for donations of money, but this time we’re looking for writing supplies that can be put into packs to be packaged and sent to writing groups in need.

Imagine you were in their situation, your possessions have been washed away, including the tools to your craft. How would you get back on your feet? Get together with your local writers group and help our community members get back on their feet by donating items will help them express themselves through craft. Some suggestions we have include:

  • Writing journals
  • USB & Hard Drives to save our work
  • Pencils & Pens
  • Gift Vouchers for stores like Officeworks, Coles and Woolworths
  • Books – Writers read to improve their craft
  • Writing Techniques Books/Information Sheets

Even dollar helps, so even if you can only spare the cost of a cup of coffee, we’d still love your support.
