Have a story to tell?
Aussie Women’s Social Circle (AWSC) accepts well-written articles from primarily Australia-based women about a range of topics.
We welcome articles of various writing styles that are easy to read, informative or entertaining and will encourage visitors to our website. Our blogs are shared across our social media channels & newsletter to an audience of over 7000 followers.
No prior writing experience is necessary, and we encourage and nurture our ‘newbies’. Preference is given to articles that have a good grasp of the English written language and require little editing.
All articles are attributed to the author with a Profile section below each article. Author’s may choose to include one link in this bio to drive online traffic to their own blog, site, or social media.
