“In order to get Australian kids’ books with LGBQ characters to their intended audience and elicit an even wider range of books from the next generation of Australian reader-writers, we need a support system of our own.” Jenny Pausacker

Get YA Words Out is a platform supporting the writing, reading and publishing of AusQueerYA. We provide resources and advice for writers, readers and the literary community. We welcome and encourage all members of the AusQueerYA community to get involved, but our primary aim is to create a safe, constructive place for Queer (LGBTQIA+) identifying writers. We advocate primarily for #OwnVoices writers in the Queer YA literary space.
