Verity La was established in 2010 as a writer-run initiative. We publish some of the best writers in the country, alongside many new and exciting voices. All those involved volunteer their time because they’re committed to Verity La’s core mission: maximising a diversity of literary voices in Australia and helping readers connect with brave new writers.

We’re proud to still be going strong and thrilled about the quality of work we publish. However, a core issue for us is lack of payment for our writers. Exposure is important, but so is adequate financial payment — if we want literature to flourish, writers need to receive an income from their labour.

So, we’re looking for supporters. Not subscribers (all of our content will remain free online) — but supporters.

We publish up to 100 poems, stories, reviews and artworks each year. We’re aiming to pay $50 for each contribution, which means we need to raise $5000 annually. (The editorial team will continue to operate on a voluntary basis, but if there is money remaining after paying our writers, we will be buying each of our hard-working editors a bottle of something delicious for Christmas.) We aim to start paying contributors at the start of publication in 2017.

Our supporters’ names, unless they wish to remain anonymous, will be published on our website (http://verityla.com/). Our campaign and supporters’ names will also be publicised on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Verity-La-372468352804373/) and on Twitter @VerityLa.

We hope that by supporting Verity La you will feel closer to the journal and its creative community. We believe that by helping us you will be making a significant contribution to the strength and diversity of Australian literature.

Established in 2010 Verity La is an on-line, no-way-for-profit, creative arts journal, publishing short fiction and poetry, cultural comment, photomedia, reviews, and interviews. Bravery is essential in the Verity La neck of the woods, which means creative risk-taking, freedom, and – above all else – being no one but yourself. We are interested in new voices, different voices, minority voices, progressive voices; we like writing that gets you in the head as well as the gut, that has a point, that isn’t afraid. We exist beyond the borders of traditional literary journals – we’re interested in danger, the barely legal.
