- Society of Women Writers (Australia), South Australian Branch
In the early 1970s Elizabeth Furner founded the Brighton Writers' Workshop from which the Society of Women Writers (Australia), South Australian Branch was formed in 1976. It promotes interest and skills in writing for women by regular meetings and workshops. It became an independent incorporated body, the Society of Women Writers South Australia Inc., when the national society was disbanded in 2000. The Society's main aim is to draw together women writers to support each other in their writing endeavours, and various seminars, worshops and other activities are organised towards this end.
