ABR Patrons Program

The ABR Patrons Program has transformed the magazine and greatly benefited Australian writers and freelance writers. At a time of real financial difficulty for many writers and diminishing paid freelance work elsewhere, our generous Patrons have enabled us to increase our payments substantially, to diversify our programs, and to foster brilliant new writing. We pay for everything we publish, and we are committed to increasing our current payment rates.

ABR – Australia’s leading literary magazine since 1961 – is a stylish and dynamic publication. Our support for writers and reviewers takes many forms: increased payments, scrupulous editing, public advocacy, talks and workshops, active marketing and PR, and exposure to our international audience. 

ABR is an independent not-for-profit organisation fully dependent on money raised from subscribers, donors, foundations, government, and advertising. ABR is a bona-fide Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR). All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. To donate to ABRclick here.

In recognition of our Patrons’ continuing generosity, ABR records multiple donations cumulatively. Our full list of current ABR Patrons can be found below.
