Summary

The Society of Women Writers Tasmania Inc. began in the late 1980s as a Magazine Branch of the Society of Women Writers (Australia), although a small group had been operating prior to this, possibly since the 1960s. It became an independent incorporated body when the national society was disbanded in 2000.

As of 2004, the Society's website described itself as 'an organisation oriented towards the art of writing in all its forms' which aimed 'not only help and support [women] in our writing endeavours but to reach as professional a standard as possible.' They produce five Postal Magazines - Appleseed, Coffee Break, Overflow, Ripples, and Chrysalis.
