Contributor guide

Thank you for your interest in writing for Social Work Focus. Our magazine is a digital publication that is read by social workers practising across the social work spectrum in Australia, including in the private and government sectors. It is also read by other allied health professionals and general practitioners who work alongside social workers.

Each issue of the magazine includes a news section and a social work practice section, the latter of which features up to five articles tailored to a theme. If a Social Work Focus theme fits with the practice, education or other services you provide, we would love to hear from you.
