Australian Indigenous Creator Scholarships

Magabala Books established the inaugural Australian Indigenous Creator Scholarship in 2013 to encourage and support Indigenous writers and artists. We invite you to invest in the creative and professional development of Indigenous authors, illustrators and storytellers from across Australia, through our annual Indigenous Creator Scholarships.

Magabala Books Literary Fund

Each year we receive manuscripts of great cultural and educational value, however they may not have mainstream commercial appeal. In 2014 Magabala establish a perpetual Literary Fund to ensure new stories are written and published and books of significance remain in print. Your donation will ensure that Magabala can continue to record and keep alive important historical, cultural and educational stories.
