How to become a supporter

As a not-for-profit publishing house, Fremantle Press has played a major role in establishing the outstanding literary reputation Western Australia enjoys today. Since its foundation in 1976, Fremantle Press’s purpose has been to publish stories by Western Australian writers and artists about Western Australia. Unique in Australia’s publishing landscape, we are dedicated entirely to nurturing, developing and promoting the literature of our state.

While Fremantle Press receives funding support from state and federal governments, direct support from the Western Australian community is vital. So if you love reading and value the creation of literature for all Western Australian readers to enjoy. We invite you to become a Fremantle Press Champion of Literature, or to make a tax deductible donation for any amount.


‘Fremantle Press has an impressive track record of publishing world-class writers. The Press was the first publisher for an extraordinary number of award-winning and bestselling authors like JoanLondon, Elizabeth Jolley, Craig Silvey, Liz Byrski, Gail Jones, Brenda Walker, Simone Lazaroo, Sally Morgan and Kim Scott. I have pledged my support for Fremantle Press because it provides the first step for new and emerging Western Australian writers.’
Liz Forbes, Inaugural 40th Anniversary Fremantle Press Champion of Literature, Past Fremantle Press chair and board member, 1997–2013.
