This site is administered by Suzanne Kiraly.

Suzanne started Aussie Writers when she realised that talented Australian writers could use exposure, in a crowded international marketplace, and especially in a prize-driven culture. Her greatest talent is that she can recognise good writing. So she set about to create some free, not-for-profit services to promote the best, talented writing in Australia.

Exposure offered through the Aussie Writers website costs nothing. But it’s selective, so all submissions are vetted by professional writers.

Promoting good writing is done through social media marketing, competitions, writers festivals and our own events, (such as Tales After Dark and our Flash Fiction Festival), as well as author interviews on our iTunes podcast.
