Can Writers Victoria help get me published?

Writers Victoria cannot refer or recommend writers to publishers or agents and we do not offer a publishing service.

While we are happy to provide general information about the publishing process, you know your writing better than anyone else and are in the best position to judge which publishers or agents are the best fit for your work. For a comprehensive list of agents and publishers, you can choose to visit The Australian Writer’s Marketplace. The Australian Writer's Marketplace is a separate website, not connected to Writers Victoria. You can also visit the website of The Australian Literary Agents Association.

As part of our manuscript assessment service, we offer publishing submission appraisals, which some publishers may be happy to view.

We also provide general information on the submission process for unsolicited manuscripts or you can read the submission guidelines on publishers’ websites. It’s important to note that each publisher has a different submission process and it’s vital that you follow their guidelines carefully.
