Word Farm

Word Farm is an interesting Facebook page which offers a sneak peek into the writing spaces of Australian authors. Some are humble and business like, while others have inspiring views or are adorned with artworks, personal treasures and even toys.  It’s a fascinating insight into the world of other writers. Each guest offers a trinket of writing wisdom, but ultimately as writers we have to find our own path and what works best for ourselves,.

Word Farm is always willing to hear from published Australian authors who would like to be featured. Please email and check out the page at
