About us

The Almanac is a writing and reading community, which offers anyone who wants to have a crack at writing (or any other art form) a place to publish.

We love footy and sport, but that’s not all. We’re interested in the arts, music, film, TV, politics, history, wine and all the other good stuff. Life really.

We’re a pretty diverse crew.

We’re happy to publish your work – any topic, any genre. (Check out our Write for us page). It doesn’t matter how experienced you are: if you want to have a go, have a go. There is opportunity to write for both the website and the The Footy Almanac and our other collections of writing (like Footy Town and our e-magazine Long Bombs to Snake).

As well we host events all around the country – regular lunches in Melbourne, book launches in the capital cities. Other functions throughout the year (see our calendar).

We also promote the endeavours of The Almanackers – whether they be writers, artists, musicians, or in any walk of life. If you become part of the Almanac community we are happy to bring you and your passion to the world (by promoting your work/concert/event) in whatever way we can.


Say g’day and express your interest by contacting  John Harms j.t.h@footyalmanac.com.au or our editors webeditor@footyalmanac.com.au


We are funded by memberships (we’d love you to join), readers’ donations, and sponsorships. We also publish books (visit the Almanac shop)
