Voiceworks is Australia’s premier youth literary journal, publishing poetry, fiction, articles, comics and visual artwork by people under 25.

With an extensive 25 year history, each issue of Voiceworks features the best creative young people from across Australia. Voiceworks both supports young writers’ development of literacy skills and celebrates their work as literary in its own right.


Australia’s newest literary talents are filling the pages of Voiceworks right now. Submissions open quarterly and are selected blind by the Editorial Committee. Each piece selected for publication goes through a collaborative editing process with the Editorial Committee, and individualised feedback is provided for all unsuccessful submissions. To contribute to Voiceworks visit voiceworksmag.com.au/contribute


The magazine is put together by the Editor and an Editorial Committee (EdComm), all of whom are also under twenty-five. EdComm assists the editor in reading submissions, editing content, proofreading, running launches and writing feedback for all our contributors. 

Applications to join the Voiceworks Editorial Committee open periodically and interstate editors are encouraged to apply. Sign up to Express Media’s e-news and social media to keep up to date with opportunities to join EdComm.
