ABR Events & Programs

Editorial Information Webinar

Australian Book Review actively supports writers and critics at a time when paid freelance publishing opportunities are diminishing. We are looking for new book reviewers, arts critics, and informed commentators to entrench our place in Australian cultural life.

What are some of the benefits of writing for ABR?

  • We pay for everything we publish, and we pay increasingly well
  • Rigorous editing and professional mentoring for emerging writers
  • Access to our fast-growing international readership

We encourage writers to join our next editorial information webinar (details below). Peter Rose (Editor and CEO) and his colleagues will offer a brief introduction to the magazine – its history, its range of interests, its diverse content. They will also discuss what editors look for in reviews and the kinds of support that writers can expect from the magazine. These informal, conversational sessions always lead to prompt commissions that benefit both parties.

Date: November 10

Time: 10:30am

Location: Zoom (a link will be sent out the morning of the webinar)
