Your information

When you access this site, an anonymous record of your visit will be kept via site cookies (See the Cookies section, below). The logged anonymous information will only be used for statistical purposes.
Information provided via online forms may be stored in databases. Your information will only be used for the purpose for which it was provided.


The copyright of all printed or spoken word belongs to the writers, and will be shared, disseminated, printed, and/or sold only with permission.


All of the people in photos used on the website have given permission for their photos to be displayed. This permission does not extend to users. If you would like to download these images, you must ask permission from the copyright holder and/or the individuals depicted in photos before using them elsewhere.

Use of Material & Information

A single copy or part of a single copy of information or material from this site for personal, non-commercial use and only in an unaltered form may be downloaded, stored in cache, displayed, printed and/or copied. Such information or material from this website may only be used for the purposes of private study, research, criticism or review, as permitted under the Copyright Act 1968 and may only be reproduced as permitted under the Copyright Act 1968.

A copy of the Act is available at ComLaw, the legal information retrieval system owned by the Australian Attorney General’s Department. Any permitted reproduction made must acknowledge the source of any selected poem, passage, extract, diagram or other information or material reproduced. Any reproduction made of the information or material must include a copy of the original copyright and disclaimer notices as set out here.

Commercial & Other Use

It is not permitted to re-transmit, distribute or sell the information or material on this web site without seeking prior written approval from Writers Rising. This website may not be used to sell a product or service, or to increase traffic to other websites for commercial reasons, such as advertising sales without written permission from Writers Rising.

Cookies & Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics cookies to collect general usage data for analytics processing only. However, we have activated IP-anonymization on this website (your IP address is therefore truncated) to prevent personally identifiable information or associations about you being sent to Google. We have opted to do this for your privacy because we do not use analytics to personally target you with advertising (and in this instance, neither will Google).

So, on this site, Google Analytics records your anonymous movements around this website, the time you spend on each page, demographics such as country or city location, and type of device (i.e. operating system such as iOS, OSX, Windows version, etc), so that I may improve my sites for all visitors.

The ‘Persistent Cookies’ (text files) in your browser are also set to expire after one month.

If you have any security concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Third-Party Services We Use

Our CRM for organising contact details for our newsletter list and distributing our bulk emails to subscribers.

We use Stripe to process all credit and debit card payments. The payments forms are actually situated on the Stripe server, not on ours. We never see your credit/debit card details.

Zapier is a well-established automated service that adds the names and email address of our Stripe payment customers and members to our MailerLite newsletter list. It is easy to permanently unsubscribe from our list via our newsletters or by contacting us directly.


All forms on this site are protected with Google’s invisible reCaptacha v3.

All credit and debit card payments are processed by Stripe which occur on the Stripe server.
