Member Benefits

Member benefit: Australian Society of Authors model publishing agreement

SPN full members have access to the industry-standard Australian Society of Authors Model Publishing Agreement.

This agreement 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 ASA also has specific agreements for illustrators and for educational publishing. Contact SPN HQ for more information.
