Advertise with Us

Writers Victoria offers affordable advertising to a targeted audience of readers and writers from across Victoria (and beyond).

We are Australia’s largest Writers’ Centre and the largest organisation supporting Victorian writers.

Writers Victoria members are interested in writing both as a hobby and as a career path, and are engaged consumers of other arts and culture.

Digital Advertising

Email Advertising

Writers Victoria can send an email to over 8,000 subscribers promoting your service or event. We have two emails per month available for booking on a Tuesday.

These advertisements can often book up weeks in advance, so we recommend contacting us early to avoid disappointment.

The cost of an email advertisement is $500 (exc GST).

Member and Subscriber Newsletters

The Writers Victoria Member Newsletter is sent twice monthly to all of our members, and a free newsletter is sent to general subscribers once a month. We communicate with over 8,000 individual subscribers and members monthly.

Each edition of our newsletter is packed with information about our upcoming workshops and events, competitions, giveaways, member milestones, and compelling articles, which ensure that the open rate is twice the industry standard.

You can choose to advertise in our member newsletter, our subscriber newsletter, or both. Graphic ads and editorial ads with text and an image cost $150 (exc. GST), and text-only classifieds run for $1.10 per word. We offer package options for those looking to advertise over a period of time, or to advertise in both our member and subscriber newsletters.

Writers Victoria Website

The Writers Victoria website informs and leads public discussion on all issues that affect the Australian writing and reading community. Our website attracts high quality, engaged readers interested in Writers Victoria’s ever-changing and always stimulating content. The website is the place to find writing tips, competitions, and lively discussions and is frequented by Writers Victoria members and enthusiastic visitors from around the world.

Website advertising offers a one-month prominent placement, attracting approximately 33,000 viewers through static or animated advertisements on the Writers Victoria homepage.
