By joining nearly 3,500 members, you’ll have access to information and guidance from the Writers Victoria team, and the opportunity to connect with our writing community.
Writers Victoria is a not-for-profit Incorporated Association. On this website, you can find out more about what it means to be a member.
Join us in our Subscriber-thon, October 2018!
Subscriber-thon is a great time to renew with Writers Victoria. Everyone who renews or takes out a new membership during the month of October will go in the draw for an assortment of great prizes. It’s no coincidence that coffee and writing go together so well. The genus Coffea is native to tropical North Africa and the great Library of Alexandria, in Egypt, was the largest and most significant library of the ancient world. So, for this year’s Subscriber-thon, we thought what could be better for our writers than a bit of caffeine to stimulate the creative senses! Our good friends at Breville have given us one of the best home espresso machines you could wish for. And the experts at Padre Coffee can teach you all the tricks of brewing like a barista.
At the end of Subscriber-thon we will draw our grand prizes:
- 1st Prize - a Breville BES840BSS Infuser Espresso Machine – valued at $699
- 2nd Prize - two places at Padre Coffee’s Espresso 101 course – valued at $300
- 3rd Prize - two places at a Buck Mulligan’s Whiskey Masterclass, plus a $20 gift voucher – total value $100
There are also plenty of prizes being given away during the month of October, for new members and renewing members:
- A daily book giveaway of ‘The Nowhere Child’ by Christian White published by Affirm Press. Christian’s book won the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript.
- Five weekly book pack prizes containing an IMAX double pass, one Penguin Book Covers diary, plus ten books for your reading pleasure from our friends at Allen and Unwin, Panterra Press, Penguin Random House, Scribe, Text Publishing and UWA Publishing.
- The weekly Director’s Choice book prize of writers on writers, consisting of a copy of ‘Christos Tsiolkas on Patrick White' plus a copy of 'Ceridwen Dovey on JM Coetzee', both published by Black Inc.
If you are renewing early, the transaction will be added automatically onto the expiry date of your current membership.
We thank you for being part of the Writers Victoria community and we wish you good luck in the draw.
