Voiceworks Subscribe-a-thon 2019

For over 30 years, Voiceworks has been more than just a national literary journal, featuring exciting new writing and art by young Australians. Voiceworks is a training ground for young editors, a confidence booster for young writers, an important stepping stone for emerging artists, and ultimately, a supportive community by and for young creators under 25. 

 Wow! Voiceworks sounds amazing!

Yeah, we think it’s great!

But what really makes Voiceworks special is the vibrant and unique community that surrounds it. This includes the Voiceworks team, Express Media, and the thousands of young storytellers submitting and contributing to Voiceworks, as well as our valued Voiceworks subscribers!

We love our subscribers (in fact, we couldn’t survive without you). We rely on subscribers in order to continue paying our storytellers and printing four chock-a-block issues a year, as well as to help us facilitate and publish Voiceworks online.

Your $60 subscription will not only help us cover costs, but is proof of your investment in young Australian voices.

And now, with the 2019 Voiceworks Subscribe-a-thon raring to go, there’s never been a better time to subscribe to Voiceworks!


What is the Voiceworks Subscribe-a-thon?

Like Christmas, the Voiceworks Subscribe-a-thon only comes around once a year, and just like Christmas, it’s a celebration, it’s a warm fuzzy feeling, it’s a time of giving (and receiving).

This year our Voiceworks Subscribe-a-thon will be running from the 6th of October through to the 23rd of October (11:59PM AEST)

Express Media is a not-for-profit organisation that runs on the goodwill, hard work, passion of volunteers, staff and, of course, Voiceworks subscribers.

As a treat for renewing or subscribing, each year we celebrate with a Voiceworks Subscribe-a-thon, where for a limited time, we put up a whole tonne of amazing goodies and prizes that you can be in the running to win just by subscribing to Voiceworks!

But most importantly, you can be safe in the knowledge that your subscription is going toward paying young storytellers for their incredible work, and sharing that work far and wide all across Australia.



So, you said something about prizes?

We did indeed!
