Westside stories

    All articles are written by volunteers

    Our content is a labour of love, crafted by dedicated volunteers who are passionate about the west.

    What content do our community want to read?

    We encourage submissions from our community, particularly stories about:

    • your own experiences
    • family history
    • local issues
    • your suburb
    • community events
    • local history
    • human interest stories
    • food
    • the arts
    • environmental matters.

    Avoid sending

    • promotional pieces
    • press releases
    • marketing materials for your small business, organisation, or event

    These can be advertised with us or covered by one of our volunteer journalists if the event has community impact.

    If you have locally relevant activities you’d like us to promote, please get in touch.
