An Update on our Blog



by Narelle Atkins

History of ACW

Our Australasian Christian Writers (ACW) blog launched in September 2013. During the last three and a half years we've published 924 posts and received 9880 comments. 

Our ACW Facebook group has 511 members. The ACW blog posts are shared in the Facebook Group and we encourage our blog readers to join our active Facebook Group.

ACW was set up as an online community for writers and readers. We post five days per week, Monday to Friday, on the blog and we promote Australasian Christian authors and books.

ACW Blog Schedule

Monday is our Writing Craft Day. We want to help and educate writers at all different stages in their writing journeys.


This week I'm working with group admins Iola Goulton and Jenny Blake to set up our blog calendar for May - August 2017. If there's a particular writing topic you'd like to see addressed in our Monday posts, please leave a comment on this post or in our Facebook group.

On the first Monday of each month we share a joint blog post with our friends at Christian Writers Downunder. In 2017 we're looking at genres. 

Iola Goulton posted in February on Great (Genre) Expectations...

Adam Collings posted in March on Exploring Genres: Space Opera and Supehero     

We do a few different things on Tuesdays. We promote the Australian Christian Readers Blog Alliance (ACRBA) book tours. ACRBA offers free blog tours for authors which are scheduled during the first week of the month.

Please read Jenny Blake's recent blog post (link below) if you're not familiar with ACRBA and how it works. 

The ACRBA Blog Alliance Needs Your Help

We also announce New Australasian Book Releases on the first or second Tuesday of each month. We post monthly requests for new book release information in our ACW Facebook Group.

The President of Omega Writers Inc. posts on our blog on the last Tuesday in January, April, July and October.  

On Tuesdays we also have spots available for guest bloggers. 

Thursday is our Book Review Day. 
Iola Goulton organises the book review blog posting schedule.

On Wednesdays and Fridays our regular team of bloggers share their posts.

How can I guest blog on ACW?

We occasionally post requests in the ACW Facebook Group for guest bloggers. If you'd like to guest blog on ACW, please contact one of the group admins (myself, Jenny Blake, Iola Goulton) or leave a comment on this post or in the ACW Facebook Group.

How can I join ACW as a regular blogger?

The first step toward becoming a regular blog contributor is to guest blog with us. If you've guest blogged with us and would like to join our blogging team, please contact one of the group admins. We have limited spots and we will create a waiting list if needed.
