Useful links

The ALAA does not recommend individual manuscript assessors or editors. Instead, we recommend that authors use the Australian Writers Marketplace as this contains the largest available directory of services that can be useful to writers.

Writers centres and other organisations provide many useful resources for writers. Links for writers centres are provided immediately below; please scroll down for links to other organisations.
