Grand Final Writing


G’day Almanac Writers

We always receive stacks of yarns about the Grand Final, and this Hawthorn-Sydney stoush is sure to get the Olivettis clacking. I look forward to reading them all.

We usually publish 5 or 6 stories in The Footy Almanac (book).

This year I have commissioned 2 writers for the Grand Final.

I now invite story ideas – where you are watching it, people you are with etc – for another 2 stories. If you email those story ideas to me [email protected], I will have a look at them, and commission those two stories.

Of course all other stories will be published (and read by thousands of footy fans) at and, as in previous years the best one or two will also be picked off the website and published in the book.

Shake down the thunder,
