Have a story to tell?

Townsville Women (TW) accepts well written articles from residents of the Townsville area 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 5000 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.

Once our regular Guest Bloggers have 4 or more articles published, they are given their own profile!  This allows followers to easily find their favourite articles by their favourite authors.
