Bringing Authors
Dreams to Life

Welcome to Anthology Angels

Anthology Angels work with aspiring authors, from school age children to adults, throughout Australia and the world to give them the opportunity to be published in a professionally produced anthology and gain an introduction into the world of being a published creative writer.

Each year we create an anthology book, showcasing a collection of short fiction, poetry or nonfiction works (or excerpts) by a variety of authors. Our judging panel is made up of experts from the publishing sector, and all published authors receive a personal invitation to the book launch to celebrate their achievements.

Anthology Angels chooses a new theme and charity each year and proceeds from the book are donated to not for profit organisations who provide support to our local or international community.

Would you like Anthology Angels to help make your dreams come true?
