Writers SA

Type Of Organization
Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Writers SA is the peak organisation for writing and literature in South Australia. We are a not-for-profit membership-based organisation that aims to foster, develop and promote writers and a national culture of writing. Established in 1985, Writers SA was the first writers’ centre in Australia, and continues to act as a resource for writers of all ages and experiences, assisting both new and established writers on every aspect of writing craft and publishing. While we are a state-based organisation, we collaborate with interstate and international partners, and we are committed to advocating on behalf of all writers in Australia. In 2021/22, we are partnering with Liminal Magazine to publish a collection of Asian-Australian writing. We are welcoming fiction and non-fiction pitches from both emerging and established Asian-Australian writers who live in South Australia. Selected works responding to the theme of Haunt will be published online, in a collection of Asian-Australian excellence that sees LIMINAL’s first South Australian series, to be published in 2022. Alongside these commissions, LIMINAL will facilitate a mentorship for two emerging editors, who will work with editors Cher Tan and Elizabeth Flux for hands-on experience editing our South Australian series.

Submissions Policy
What spectres linger? What superstitions appear in the day to day? Whether it be ghosts of people or ideas, experiences that cause ripples through lives and generations, places you return to again and again, we want to hear what ‘haunt’ means to you. The LIMINAL Writing Commissions call for fiction and non-fiction writers to send through a pitch of their best ideas. We are looking for work that touches on the theme of Haunt, in the broadest ways possible; you are welcome to take the theme and split it apart, interrogate it, or turn it inside out. We welcome work from both emerging and established Asian-Australian writers. Writers will be paid $600 each, for their piece in the LIMINAL x Writers SA series.
