Letters & Comments

Letters and comments policy

Australian Book Review welcomes discussion and debate through its Letters and Comments facility. We encourage readers to comment on reviews and articles published in ABR. When doing so please bear the following in mind:

  • Comments are pre-moderated by staff before publication
  • We encourage commenters to state their full name, in the interest of openness
  • Please keep comments reasonably brief and pertinent to the topic
  • We do not publish comments that incite hatred or violence
  • We do not publish comments that are legally dubious, i.e. those that contain defamatory material or that infringe copyright laws
  • Gratuitous abuse of authors, critics or commentators is not acceptable
  • Do not use our comments section for spam or commercial purposes
  • Comments may be published in the print edition, subject to editing
  • The letters and comments received and published by ABR are the opinions of the named contributor and ABR does not represent that it shares, or endorses, the opinions expressed.
