Writer’s Edit is an online literary magazine and independent press, all about supporting and celebrating writers worldwide. From our supportive editorial team to the hundreds of articles featuring insightful writing advice, we seek to empower. We’re also on a mission to bring more beautiful books into the world.
The online literary magazine houses hundreds of fantastic articles about writing, industry news, tips on getting published and inspiration. As tea-loving bookworms and writers we understand the ups and downs of the writer’s life. Therefore, everything you see on the website seeks to provide advice, support and encouragement. We’re a platform for the writers, by the writers.
We try to make our editorial process as supportive, helpful and constructive as possible. Feedback from trusted fellow writers is an indispensable part of the writer’s life, journeying from novice to experienced wordsmith. We believe the writer’s life, though at times confusing and challenging, is rewarding and not necessarily one of solitude.
It’s our digital format that grants us the perfect environment to establish and cultivate a thriving online writing community. With new articles published weekly, there’s always more to enjoy! The strong social presence of our editorial team, contributing writers and readers also helps to cultivate conversations and a sense of community.
In 2014 we also becamean independent press. Our first book, Kindling Volume I, features inspiring works of fiction, nonfiction and poetry. Since the inception and publication of our proudest achievement, a number of our authors have gone on to release full-length books and win literary awards. We’re thrilled to be a part of their journey from pen and paper to publication.
This year, we decided to continue the Kindling legacy. On November 18th 2015 we’ll be launching our 2nd volume of Kindling, another literary feast of fantastic short stories, nonfiction essays, poetry and writing advice. Kindling is our way of bridging the gap between the modern digital world, and the traditional roots of writing – the print book.
Earlier this year, we launched two additional initiatives to celebrate the best of emerging talent: the Short Story of the Month and Poem of the Month. Winning submissions are published on our site, drawing in avid readers to incredible authors. Every piece is a testament to the endless talent of Australian and international writers. Without these inspiring individuals, Writer’s Edit wouldn’t be the creative online space it is today.
We also love to host regular giveaways, often featuring giftcards to Amazon and similar retailers. The writer’s life is by nature one of reading, so we’re always looking to spread the book love.
Writer’s Edit offers writers from all walks of life a supportive community and a platform for publication. If you’re ready to embrace an online space devoted to writers and created by writers, then it’s time to join the Writer’s Edit community. All writers, whether young or old, local or international, emerging or established, are welcome.
