Acknowledgment of Country
The team at Underground Writers would like to respectfully acknowledge that we work and operate on the traditional lands of the Wadjuk people of the Noongar nation, and also on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. As an internationally-reaching zine and organisation, we also pay our respects to the traditional custodians of all the lands from which the content of this website and our zine are sourced.
Who we are
Underground Writers is a not for profit organisation made up of a passionate team of volunteers who exist to support and promote emerging writers in Australia.
We seek to promote the work of emerging Australian authors while also helping new writers gain the skills, knowledge and confidence necessary to pursue publication.
We are primarily known for Underground, our free creative writing zine, in which we gather and curate creative writing from talented authors to be released in quarterly online issues. We offer in-depth feedback to all submitters and payment for published contributions.
