The Gold Coast City Council has just started a great blog that the city’s young writers (aged between 12 and 16) can post on. Budding writers (appropriately aged) should jump onto the new site, ‘Blurb It‘.

An initiative of the libraries of the Gold Coast City Council, they are hoping ‘Blurb It‘ will be a place for the city’s youth to post their own articles and access information, reviews, tips and tricks. If you want to get involved, create your own contributor account and then you can start submiting your own articles to the blog. Email [email protected] for more information on how to get started.

This is such a good way for libraries to reach out to the tech-savy generations. At the moment they are running a three-month trial of the blog, so make sure you let everyone know about it so they can keep this going.



The Australian Writer’s Marketplace is Australia and New Zealand’s only guide to the writing industry. While providing submission and contact details for the print media and publishing industry.
