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 music, film, TV, politics, history, wine and all the other good stuff. Life really.


We’re a pretty diverse crew.


We’d like 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 our annual bookand 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 – especially regular lunches in Melbourne, as well book launches around the country. Other functions throughout the year (see our calendar).


Say g’day and express your interest by contacting  John Harms [email protected] or our editors [email protected]


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