Writers Victoria is proud to promote and celebrate the literary goings on around the state, connect its members, and help showcase projects and businesses that help make writers shine.
Writers Victoria members receive three free classifieds a year, to be shard in our regular member newsletters and in our quarterly magazine, The Victorian Writer.
Competitions and Opportunities
Writers Victoria members are always on the look out for new prizes and writing opportunities. Writers Victoria offers space to share your upcoming competition or opportunity with our members. To let us know of a competition of opportunity to be added to our Opps & Comps calendar, send an email to [email protected].
If you would like to guarantee when, where or how many times your competition or opportunity is promoted, please consider booking a paid advertisement. Information on rates for paid advertisements can be found on our website here. To book a paid advertisement for your opportunity or competition, send an email to [email protected].
A classified can be a great way to contact other members or to promote your events, opportunities or services (provided they do not conflict with those offered by Writers Victoria – see ‘Listings & classifieds policy’ below). Classifieds are line ads and can be published in our fortnightly newsletter, or The Victorian Writer magazine. Classifieds are text only and can be up to 75 words in length.
Members of Writers Victoria receive three free classifieds a year. To book a classified, send an email to [email protected].
If you want to use more than your three free listings in a calendar year, additional classifieds will be charged at $1.10 per word.
Writers Victoria loves to know what its members are up to, and our members also love to read about each other’s successes. Milestones are important to celebrate, no matter the amount of the prize money or accolades. Let us know if you’ve been published, if you’ve self-published, if you’ve won a competition, been commended in a competition, or been shortlisted for an award.
To have your milestone listed in an upcoming issue of our member newsletter and our magazine The Victorian Writer, fill out this form with the details of your milestone.
Listings & classifieds policy
Listings and classifieds are accepted at the discretion of Writers Victoria. Postings will be edited for length, style and to ensure our communications create a safe space for all.
Writers Victoria cannot guarantee when, where or how many times your free listing will be published. If you want to specify that your listing is published in a certain way or within a certain time period, please consider booking a paid advertisement. Find out more about how to advertise with us.
Writers Victoria does not offer free listings to competing fee-for-service individuals, publishers or organisations, or for paid events, except in the instance of partnership between the listing party and Writers Victoria.
