SA First Nations Writers Group

The South Australian First Nations Writers Group was established to foster and develop the continuing diversity and growth of local First Nations writing in South Australia. It is coordinated by Edoardo Crismani, a descendant of the Wiradjuri people, author of poetry and short stories and working on his first novel manuscript.

In 2020, the group has welcomed guest speakers including Jared Thomas, a Nukunu person of the Southern Flinders Ranges and an international award-winning author, and Rachel Bin Salleh, a Nimunburr and Yawuru woman from the Dampier Peninsula in the Kimberley of Western Australia and Publisher at Magabala Books.

The group meets once a month from 6–8pm ACST.
