3 Australian Publications that Welcome Overseas Writers! – by Kerry Martin Millan

Curious about Australia? Are you longing to seek cultural experience while being painfully aware of travel bans? In the current pandemic, where creativity and imagination is paramount for a semblance of normalcy, I find myself writing about various cultural niches non-stop. Australia is a beautiful country of rugged lands and unique species, juxtaposed with thriving cities and rich cultural diversity. Why not let your imagination run wild with these paying literary publications?

You don’t have to be Australian, nor solely focus on Australian issues. International issues are also welcome. All you need is a penchant for literary works, and a desire to say something different, insightful, or daring.

Quadrant  accepts more than 200 articles, 200 poems, 70 book reviews, 20 short stories and 75 letters to the editor each year. They also are willing to review unsolicited, previously unpublished articles that fit within its journal of ideas, essays, literature, poetry and historical and political debate. It seeks “cultural freedom, anti-totalitarianism and classical liberalism, but its pages are open to any well-written and thoughtful contribution.” Some of their writers are internationally renowned; some are previously unknown.
