Brisbane’s oldest speculative fiction writers group, Vision writers was founded by Marianne de Pierres and Rowena Cory Daniells in 1996. The group’s primary goal is the critiquing of fiction with the intent of improving not only the piece in question but also honing the writer’s talent as well. We love new members! Anyone from Brisbane and its surrounding area can join (we have members from the Redlands and Ipswich as well – if you’re willing to trek to the meeting we’re happy to have you).
Talem Press is a new publisher of fantasy books, and is an imprint of Writer’s Edit Press. Talem Press is a completely independent, Sydney-based house. Talem believes in the life-changing potential of stories, and everything they publish seeks to provide inspiration, and escape. The editors are particularly passionate about unlikely heroines, mysterious magic and out-of-this-world story-telling. Submissions will be open for a period of three months (July 12 – October 12).
