Westerly’s October Subscription Drive!

It’s that time of year again! Each year we run our October subscription drive in a bid to entice new readers and old friends with a subscription to Westerly. Running between October 1st & October 31st, Westerly’s annual Subscription Drive has some great subscription offers and competitions to thank our readers for their ongoing support!

For over 60 years, Westerly Magazine has been supporting emerging and established writers from Western Australia and around the world. The magazine has been instrumental in the careers of many Western Australian writers. We’re proud of all the established and emerging writers that we’ve helped to support, but we couldn’t do it without you! We depend on our subscribers to continue publishing and supporting great writing talent. Subscription is our life-blood, and the community of readers around the magazine is our reason for existing.

To say thank you to the readers that keep us going, Westerly is offering a special deal during October: for $5 off the price of your subscription, use the code OCTSUB18 before the end of the month on any twelve month or Friends of Westerly subscription! This offer applies to renewals as well.

Even better, as an added incentive, we’ve got a prize draw running for the whole month, with some great book packs to give away. All you have to do to get your hands on some great reads is subscribe or renew, and you automatically go in the draw to win. Upcoming over the month:

Week One (Oct 1-7): Fiction Prize Pack
Week Two (Oct 8-14): Poetry Prize Pack
Week Three (Oct 15-21): Non-Fiction Prize Pack
Week Four (Oct 22-31): Subscription Prize Pack


Week Four’s prize pack, the grand finale to our Subscription Drive, will see you in the running to win a year’s worth of reading from our sister organisations! The winner will receive twelve-month subscriptions to Island, Overland, Southerly, The Lifted Brow, The Griffith Review and Writers Victoria (membership). Woohoo!

We’ll also have some fun coming across the whole of the month:

  • Take a photo with your copy of Westerly in the wild using the tag #WithWesterly for a chance to win! Our favourites from each week will receive a copy of our latest issue for free.
  • As a special treat, we will be releasing a work from our latest issue on the website each week. Alison Martin’s ‘Star Atlas’ is the first piece released – read it in our blog!
  • Plenty of other little giveaways and competitions will be announced across the month… So stay tuned and watch this space.

Thank you to our readers who continue to help support great writing talent. You can visit our website to check out our special October Subscription Drive offers, and to grab your subscription to Westerly.
