The Fellowship is proud to be a member of the Copyright Agency and has often benefited from its generous Cultural Fund. The Copyright Agency is an Australian not-for-profit organisation that has been standing up for creators for more than 40 years. They enable the reuse of copyright-protected words and images in return for fair payment to creators. FAWWA recommends that you ensure copyright over your own work as well as looking at what grants are available for writers. To check out the site click here.

FAWWA would like to acknowledge Lotterywest for the generous grant that supported the purchase of equipment and furniture for Mattie Furphy House.

The Four Centres Emerging Writers Program is made possible by a grant from DLGSC.
