Reading Australia

Copyright Agency has launched an exciting new venture, Reading Australia. An initiative of Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund, Reading Australia is intended ‘to benefit readers both in Australia and across the world, along with providing direct benefit to Australia’s authors and publishers who have created the diverse and significant works that tell our nation’s story.’

Reading Australia aims to make it easier and more appealing for Australian texts to be taught in schools and universities, offering teaching materials and essays written by contemporary authors, for the titles which appear on the website. Those titles – 200 to begin with – were selected by the Australian Society of Authors’ Council.
