Edith Speers

Welcome to my website, new as of August 2006. Originally the site was intended to showcase my experience and skills as editor and publisher. However, the writing took over.

As you will find, if you read through the work presented here and perhaps scan the database of my published and prize-winning work, the writing always takes over. That is what makes a writer.

On the other hand, the writer also needs a life – or you would have nothing to write about, and no money to support your addiction to words, words, and more words. I have worked many different jobs, from apple-picker to doctor’s receptionist, from astrologer to teacher-librarian. For the last ten years I have focussed on editing and publishing some of the very best of Tasmania’s authors.

I hope you enjoy this chance to look into the life of a writer who also is an editor and publisher.
