Our Content Agency Story

Article Writers Australia was established in 2009. We’re a small content agency located in Sydney.

Initially, we provided only content writing services, but in 2014 we expanded. We wanted to offer clients a coordinated approach to content creation for their brands.

Our ethos has always been one of providing high quality content services for clients, and flexible work conditions for our content writers.

A modern business culture

Happy workers make for happy clients. Our aim has always been to create an environment that allows our team to work from home, and to enjoy a flexible work schedule. We believe that people come first. And we want everyone who works for us to be able to prioritise family matters without guilt.

We don’t operate from commercial offices. We manage projects in the cloud, so it’s unlikely we’ll ever need to. Our writers are located in NSW, QLD, VIC, SA and WA. Most other team members, including our content strategist and senior editor, are in Sydney.
