About The Australian Writer’s Marketplace
The Australian Writer’s Marketplace is Australia and New Zealand’s only guide to the writing industry. While providing submission and contact details for the print media and publishing industry, it also includes:
- support organisations and information services
- a range of writing courses and workshops
- literary events and competitions; and
- services for each stage of the writing, editing and publication process.
First published in 1997 by Rhonda Whitton, Queensland Writers Centre bought the production rights in 2002. Each best-selling print edition has been endorsed by Australian writers like Kate Grenville, Matthew Reilly, John Birmingham, Nick Earls and Tara Moss. Articles include advice from writers, literary agents, editors and industry professionals.
The website of The Australian Writer’s Marketplace was originally developed with the support of The Community Benefit Gambling Fund.
