Further details, as described by The Big Smoke, can be found below.


We are seeking outstanding writers for The Big Smoke – an exciting and incisive online publication focused at smart and informed readers that aims to add a new, refreshing and fiercely independent voice to Australia’s media scene.

The publication will focus on news of the day, political scenarios that the nation currently faces, women’s issues, the arts, culture and finance.

Our publication has an unashamedly urban and intellectual focus and as a writer, so should you. As a writer in any of these areas, your level of experience is less important than your voice, which should be highly eloquent and strong. We are also not scared of controversy. If you have something important to say that riles you up and you’re unusually good at stringing a sentence together – we wanna read it!

We are not in a position to pay at this stage, though with the growth of this publication we expect this to change and are focused on cultivating a community of new writers with a distinct voice for the Australian media market. This will also be an opportunity for you to create a portfolio, online presence and name for yourself.

This website will go online in July/August.
