Advisory Consultations

We offer advisory and information services for people with writing, career and publishing enquiries. These meetings are conducted by phone unless you are Deaf. Deaf writers can book a consult with a staff member and an interpreter via Zoom, or ask their questions via a dedicated messenger thread.

Appointments are tailored for individual and in depth consultation. These meetings are charged at $130 per half hour for members, and $180 per half hour for non-members.

Consultations times book up well in advance, so there may be a waiting period. Please note there is no reading service as part of this consultation. If you want feedback on your manuscript, synopsis or other writing, please see our manuscript assessment services.

To book a consultation either call us on (08) 8223 7662 or email us.


“In 2019 I contacted Writers SA for a consultation about approaching publishers and literary agents. Jessica Alice’s advice was detailed, informed, and ultimately very useful. She told me what to expect, how to best pitch my work, and clearly outlined the pros and cons of different approaches to publication. I’m happy to say that shortly after our consultation, the manuscript was accepted by Allen & Unwin. I have no doubt that Writers SA helped make this happen and enthusiastically recommend their services.” – past participant.
