The New Zealand Freelance Writers’ Association
Many writers live away from the support and encouragement that comes from sharing with others who have a similar interest. Writers' groups are not always available. Where do you go to learn about writing? How do you learn the do's and don'ts of trying for publication? Writing is often a lonely craft, but you needn't feel isolated.
The New Zealand Freelance Writers' Association has been in existence for over 30 years. It is unique in that it is the only national organisation with a membership that is open to writers of all ages, from beginners to professionals, covering all aspects of writing - fact or fiction. NZFWA is a non-profit organisation funded only by members' subscriptions. The only criterion for membership is an interest in writing. You do not have to be a published writer to become a member.
While NZFWA is a New Zealand organisation, we do have members in Australia, England and America, so being outside of New Zealand does not stop you becoming a member. Freelance is the quarterly magazine published by the NZ Freelance Writers' Association. Copies of each issue are posted to members, and also to public libraries, polytechnics, schools, publishers and publications throughout New Zealand.
