Writers are amongst our greatest innovators.
Extraordinary books ignite other creative industries, including film and television, art, video games and music.
With so much opportunity globally to innovate and develop creatively, it is now more important than ever to offer economic certainty to our writers.
As an ‘innovation nation’ the book publishing industry needs to offer incentives to our established and emerging thinkers, writers, creators and educators.
We want all Australians, especially the very youngest, to have their imaginations stimulated through recognition and kinship with their own unique perspective, their own stories, and their own voices.
Securing the future of Australian educational books is vital to the development of our literacy, identity and culture - and the ideas that fire our economic growth and prosperity.
