Our ability to promote Western Australian literature and culture, as well as provide a platform for writers and poets, depends entirely on our loyal subscribers. We are humbled by the support we continue to receive from readers, over 61 years from the day of our first issue. Readers and subscribers play a vital role in the continued success of our publication. Please take the opportunity to look at some of our amazing offers below!

We are offering a 10% discount on both our 12  Month Subscription package and our automatically renewed Friends of Westerly package! To redeem this wonderful offer, simply enter the code OCTSUB16 at the checkout.

We are also offering a discounted joint subscription with Southerly Journal. Southerly is one of Australia’s oldest literary journals and is dedicated to publishing the best in new fiction, poetry, reviews and criticism. To purchase a joint subscription of Westerly and Southerly with an extra discount of $13.50 (on top of the already discounted joint sub rate!) simply enter the code SOUTH-WESTERLY at the checkout.

All of our subscription packages can be purchased as gifts. With Christmas around the corner, it’s a great idea to get started early! To purchase a gift subscription be sure to check the box marked ‘Purchase as gift’ at the checkout, complete the recipient’s details, and we will deliver the subscription directly to them.

In more subscription news, we are pleased to announce that Westerly now offers a joint subscription with Australian Book Review (ABR)! ABR is one of Australia’s leading cultural magazines and the joint subscription will deliver 10 copies of ABR as well as 2 copies of Westerly right to your door.


Finally, to get a taste-test of Westerly  before subscribing, be sure to take a look at our latest Online Special Issue, Westerly: New Creative. With a particular focus on new and emerging Western Australian talent, New Creative offers a glimpse into the bright future of writing in WA.

Special thanks must go to our talented group of guest editors Rashida Murphy, Marie O’Rourke, Josephine Taylor and David Thomas Henry Wright. Their tireless work in developing New Creative has resulted in a wonderful issue that celebrates the unique qualities of Western Australian writing.
