Literature

The Australia Council for the Arts supports the excellence, diversity and vitality of Australian literature. 

We support the creation and development of new work through grants directly to writers and to the publishing industry, literary magazines and journals. We also provide grants to organisations and programs that contribute to the skills and professional development of Australian writers and the development and presentation of their work. 

The Australia Council for the Arts recognises the importance of the promotion of the work by Australian writers both nationally and internationally to ensure Australia is recognised for its great artists and its quality contemporary writing. We also invest in the development of a vibrant literary culture for all Australians.
