ASA/SPN Model Trade Publishing Agreement


ASA/SPN Model Trade Publishing Agreement- Australian Society of Authors

The Small Press Network is delighted to be able to offer our Full Members access to the ASA/SPN Model Trade Publishing Agreement. This model agreement, mutually endorsed by both the ASA and SPN, provides a working template that is fair to both authors and publishers, and provides a framework within which the publisher and author can negotiate appropriate commercial terms, secure in the knowledge that the important fundamental rights of both parties remain protected.

The model publishing agreement package consists of:

  • A template publishing agreement between publisher and author
  • A guide to completing this Agreement
  • A glossary of industry terms

If you are a full member of SPN you can purchase the ASA/SPN Model Trade Publishing Agreement for $175 GST inclusive. (You will need to be a logged in Full Member to access this page. You will be redirected to the Home page if you are not.)
