What we need

Blogs can be accepted in written form (approx. 750 words), audio or video format (approx. 3 mins). You are welcome to submit visual images with any written work, but this is not a requirement – WWDA can help support you if you would like accompanying images.

  • If your blog is in audio format, you will need to provide a transcript.
  • If your blog has visual elements, you will need to provide a written description.
  • If you need support to make a transcript or written description, please let us know.

How to submit

If you have an idea for a blog post, you can email our blog editor on blogs@wwda.org.au with a pitch. Your pitch should be between 50-100 words outlining what you would like to write/talk about for the WWDA blog. There is no deadline and WWDA will accept submissions on a rolling basis.

Even if you have never had a piece of work published before, we want to hear your voice and support you to publish your writing!

WWDA strongly encourages submissions from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, other Black and Brown voices, people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, people with experiences of incarceration or institutionalisation, LGBTIQA+ people and people with intellectual disability. WWDA will be reserving space for these voices.

WWDA will only accept submissions from women, girls, feminine identifying or non-binary people with disability who reside in Australia.

We acknowledge that our experiences look different for everyone and can depend on gender, race, class and other identities. We want to share your thoughts and critique on current issues in the community and beyond.

WWDA believes strongly in paying women and gender-diverse people for their work and as such, can offer $100 for blog posts.
