Hi, my name is Alys Jackson and I'm a poet and writer

based in Adelaide, South Australia.

My work has been published in magazines,

anthologies and online.

What are your goals? To connect with people through my writing and to pass on the useful tips and knowledge I gain along the way. It is also wonderful to know that people enjoy what I write and get pleasure from something that means a lot to me.

If you are an adult reader, please go to my Fiction page for details and samples of my work. If you are a writer or thinking of writing, I have a Blog with tips and competition details to help get you started or keep you inspired. I also have pages for Children with poems, short stories and illustrations to give younger readers ideas.

Please feel free to leave me comments and suggestions via my Contact page or SUBSCRIBE to my monthly blog for updates on competitions or information on books or writing.
