Woroni has been the ANU student media publication since 1950 and now maintains three media platforms: Woroni, Woroni Radio and Woroni TV. We encourage all ANU students and staff members to contribute. There is no requisite for skill or experience, just a passion for producing quality content. If you would like to contribute, please see the information below or get in contact with one of our Editors. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for future hiring opportunities and show sign-ups.
Woroni is always open for online submissions, including over break periods (although note this is subject to editor availability). These submissions can be on any topic, provided they are of good quality writing, have a strong voice and are relevant to student interest. We recommend a word count of 700-1500 words. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any pitches or drafts and one of our content sub-editors will be in contact.
Please be sure to mention any possible conflicts of interest to your editor. Anonymous submissions are also welcome.
Woroni releases 3 print editions each semester. These editions are always themed and we strongly encourage submissions to engage with these. Some examples of previous themes are Revolution, Depravity, Retro and Bloodties. For regular updates about ongoing opportunities, the upcoming print schedule and pitches currently available, please join our Woroni Contributors Facebook group. Themes, sourcing periods and deadlines will be posted on Facebook and the Woroni website. You can then email email@example.com with any themed pitches or submissions and one of our content sub-editors will be in contact.
The magazine is currently split into 4 sections:
Campus – ANU specific news and opinion pieces
Comment – General science, business and economics, politics, environment, opinion and memoir pieces
Culture – Literature, art, TV, film, social media, opinion pieces and reviews
Creative – Poems, prose, short stories, artwork and satire
Please indicate in your submission where you think your piece is best placed. We recommend a word count of 700-1000 words.
