Quakers share a way of life rather than a set of beliefs. We seek to experience God (however we understand that word) directly, within ourselves and in our relationships with others and the world around us. For more information visit the Quakers Australia website.
About The Australian Friend
The Australian Friend is the official journal of The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Australia Inc. It has been continuously published since 1887. There are four issues per year, in March, June, September and December. We also publish Quaker Voice.
We welcome contributions (articles, photos, poems, drawings) which are consistent with the purpose of The Australian Friend. Contact us through the form on the website, or by email to editor[at]australianfriend.org. Articles should be attached as Word documents. Send images as separate attachments, and not embedded in Word files. We prefer images in jpg format. Contributions may be submitted at any time, though there are various deadlines for each issue.
The Australian Friend is available free online to all readers. Subscription to receive articles by email, and comment on articles is free. A printed version is available to Members of Australian Yearly Meeting who request it at no cost.
