Based in Sydney, Australia, Writer’s Edit is a young online literary magazine created especially for writers and book lovers. Founded in July 2013, the Writer’s Edit concept evolved as Founding Editor, Helen, explored the literary gems of Europe.
From Beatrix Potter’s Lake District to Dickens’ London; and from Franz Kafka’s Prague to Anne Frank’s Amsterdam, the idea that was Writer’s Edit, took on a life of its own.
Designed as a place of comfort and support for those who are new to the industry as well as those who are old friends, our site houses everything from essays and writing prompts to author interviews and writing advice.
In 2014, Writer’s Edit achieved its ultimate goal: becoming a small press. Writer’s Edit Press was born to publish our annual Kindling anthology of creative writing, you can read more about Kindling here.
2016 will see the third and final volume of Kindling published, before we move onto new projects. Long-term, our dream is to play an even bigger part in helping the development of the future Austens and Fitzgeralds. Basically, we'd like to be publishing a number of novels each year.
Unlike a lot of other literary publications, Writer’s Edit believes in strong relationships with our writers. We offer advice, inspiration, feedback, friendship and a fresh and engaging publication platform for emerging authors, without the affiliate sales pitches.
As writers ourselves, we understand more about the writer’s plight than the average publication, and so we aim to reply to every query and every submission with honesty and encouragement.
Writer’s Edit has gone from a one-woman show to a small team of dedicated wordsmiths. To find out more about our wonderful and talented staff, click here.
