For Creative Writers Everywhere…

I know you probably don’t want a reminder that Christmas is fast approaching but I need to put out a request for Christmas stories and poems for the December issue.

Poems and stories up to one page long.

And don’t forget ‘fillers’ – short poems and snippets perfect for those little spaces and no less valuable than longer pieces.

Send your submissions (mail only) to Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote, Victoria 3523 as soon as possible.

If you are unfamiliar with the magazine and would like a sample recent copy, please send $2.20 in unused stamps (or $5.50 for 3 recent copies) to the above address. Direct deposit also available if preferred.

Positive Words magazine was established in 2002 as a self-funded venture to help provide an opportunity for writers to have their work published. Since then 100s of writers from all over Australia (and a few from overseas) have been featured in the monthly issues. I do not receive any funding and do not draw any wages for the magazine, it is a labour of love and relies on sales to survive. It is priced at just $6 a copy (6month subscription $35, 12 months $60)

If you need further information message me or email positivewordsmagazine@live.com.au

Perhaps…

Last year, determined not to waste Covid-Isolation time, I put together a small collection of my poetry… a few favourites and some prize winners. It is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and it’s a thrill to see it in print. I still have some copies available 🙂

Perhaps…is priced at $5.50 which includes postage within Australia. Cheques, money orders, direct deposit or unused postage stamps accepted. Message or email me (positivewordsmagazine@live.com.au)

Back Copies

I have lots of extra back copies and I’m trying to clear some space in my very cluttered office.

Send (or direct deposit) $2.20 for one recent back copy, $3.30 for two or $5.50 for four different copies.

Just the price of postage 🙂

Great reading and inspiration. Each issue contains a wide range of poetry and stories from writers all over Australia as well as prompts for writing.

The address for stamps is Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523 Vic or email positivewordsmagazine@live.com.au for deposit. Thanks 🙂
