Member listings

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 are able to upload three free listings each year for publication on our website, enews or The Victorian Writer magazine. Listings can include:

  • Calendar listings (Competitions and Opportunities)
  • Member Noticeboard listings (Classifieds and Member Milestones)

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 3,500 members.

We prefer listings of 50 to 100 words. To upload your competition or opportunity, log into the website and go to Add Content / Listing in the Member Menu.

If you would like to guarantee when, where or how many times your competition or opportunity is promoted, please consider booking an advertisement. Find out more about how to advertise with us.

Classifieds

A classified can be a great way to contact other members or to promote your event, services or business. Classifieds are line ads and may be included on the website, weekly enews or The Victorian Writer magazine.

Classifieds are text only and can be up to 75 words in length. To upload your competition or opportunity, log into the website and go to Add Content / Listing in the Member Menu. Website listings will stay online for 30 days.

If you would like to guarantee when, where or how many times your competition or opportunity is promoted, please consider booking an advertisement. Find out more about how to advertise with us. If you want to use more than your three free listings, additional classifieds will be charged at $1.10 per word.

Member Milestones

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.
