Member only guide to the Australian book industry.
The ASA campaigns at industry and government levels for author and illustrator rights, including but not limited to robust copyright protections, fair contracts and fair pay. We set minimum recommended rates of pay for writers, and support authors and illustrators through training, mentorships and awards. In addition, our contract assessments, industry information and practical advice help our authors and illustrators make informed decisions about their professional practice.
We do all this supported only by modest membership and service fees. But with your contribution to the ASA Endowment Fund, we will be better placed to strengthen Australia’s writing culture and build a more supportive environment for Australia’s authors and illustrators.
