As part of its 80th Birthday celebrations, Australia’s biggest-selling magazine, The Australian Women’s Weekly has launched a nationwide search to uncover the best stories in the land — and the first-stop on its story-hunting tour is Dubbo.
If you are a woman based in the Dubbo region and you have a story you think is worth sharing as part of our Great Australian Stories initiative, then get in contact with us now.
The Weekly’s Editor-in-Chief, Helen McCabe and News Editor, Bryce Corbett, will attend the Dubbo Show on Friday May 3 and, in a special presentation, showcase some of the local stories they have uncovered.
"Stories of Australian women — their triumphs and tragedies — have formed the backbone of the magazine since it launched in 1933," explained Helen McCabe.
"To mark the magazine's 80th birthday, and to celebrate the central role Australian women have played in its history, we have decided to scour the country for Great Australian Stories."
Women of the Dubbo region who feel they have a story to tell — or know someone locally who has a compelling story worth sharing — should email News Editor, Bryce Corbett before April 29 at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
"If The Australian Women’s Weekly has learned anything in the last 80 years, it’s that everyone has a story to tell," said Helen McCabe.
The Weekly’s search for Great Australian Stories will continue throughout the year, with visits planned to the Hamilton Show (Victoria) and the Townsville Show (Qld).
If you are a woman from either of those regions with a compelling story to tell, please get in touch with us at the above email address.
