Here at Writer's Edit, putting incredible works of writing out into the world is our main goal. We do this through a number of avenues.
First, our online magazine publishes writing advice, book reviews, author interviews and industry news all year round.
Secondly, we publish an annual creative writing anthology, Kindling both in print and digital formats.
And finally, we've introduced a new initiative - Short Story and Poem of the Month. Find out more about our publications below.
The third and final instalment of our favourite creative writing journal is here! Offering insightful writing advice and industry experience, as well as a collection of powerful short stories, essays and poetry, this book is a must-have for all writers.
The final instalment of the Kindling series offers a collection of stories, poetry and creative non-fiction from writers all over the world. With words to instruct, inspire and illuminate, this anthology is essential for modern writers and readers alike.
Kindling III was launched November 16th, 2016. You can read a recap of the event here, or view the photo gallery here.
Kindling Volume II is even bigger and better than before. Featuring an impressive line-up of short stories, creative non-fiction, essays, poetry and writing advice, this one is definitely by the writers, for the writers.
Including work from leading literary talent such as Alison Jean Lester, Kristin Prescott, Fikret Pajalic, Ruth Christopher and many more, this volume has flown off the shelves since its release.
In Kindling II, the reader is not only treated to a vast array of forms, but also a nuanced and thoughtful arrangement of pieces. It’s a nifty proposition: an anthology filled with both punchy contemporary fiction and poetry, as well as insider knowledge and tips for aspiring writers - Louise Jaques for NSW Writers' Centre
Kindling Volume I is the first official Writer's Edit anthology: a vibrant collection of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry and writing advice for all emerging wordsmiths. It showcases the work of some incredible up-and-coming talent as well as offers advice from more established writers.
Kindling Volume I made a big debut splash with killer whales in Twofold Bay, rebellious teenagers and homeless ghost writers, as well as interviews with some of Australia’s leading literary figures.
It featured the work of authors like Lee Kofman, Nick Gadd and Damon Moore (among many other talents), while Kristin Prescott shared advice from Kate Forsyth and Kim Wilkins.

Each piece in this anthology offers something new. There is a real insight into the future of the written word (in all its forms) in Australia. Reading through is a journey of discovery, akin to visiting a bookstore and discovering a new favourite author. I wait with baited breath for another edition, and to see what will become of the writers within the pages - Hannah via Goodreads
Short Story and Poem of the Month
Throughout 2016, Writer's Edit ran a new initiative 'Short Story of the Month' and 'Poem of the Month'.
Each month, we published and showcased a piece in each category we thought was absolutely brilliant. The author received professional editing and extensive social media promotion across our platforms.
Due to the upcoming release of our online courses and educational platform, the Short Story & Poem of the Month initiative will not continue into 2017.
