Your membership:

  • Helps fund our programmes (such as Writers in Schools), campaigns and advocacy work
  • Supports our unique online resources, such as the National Reading Survey and Writers Files
  • Means you'll receive a special collateral pack in the mail to help you spread the word about your generous donation

Membership for individuals costs $50 per year. Your $50 can help fund an author to visit a school class of 25 students; pay to mail ten books to our keen teenage Hooked on Books reviewers around the country; or help fund our vital national research into reading for pleasure.

We also offer School, Library and Business memberships: contact us for more detail on these.

Thank you for joining us!

The Writers in Schools programme is great because it gives children access to real people, real authors, real stories and they can connect to the person and see themselves as future writers/authors too…I'd love to do it again more often if I could!
