In 2016 senior representatives of the publishing industry, booksellers, authors and the library sector gathered at ALIA House in Canberra. The purpose was to look for ways to champion Australian writing, and to identify areas for potential collaboration.

Since then, the joint industry round table has met to advance the industry, working together on key promotional strategies and sector-wide agreements.

Check out the Projects page for a look at our joint efforts.

The round table is comprised of members from:

Australian Libraries and Information Association

Australian Publishers Association

Australian Society for Authors

BookPeople (formerly the Australian Bookseller Association)
