Author Application

Are you looking for a way to reach new readers? Network with other authors in your genre? Meet authors in a different genre? Then we're looking for you!

Book Fair Australia is looking for new and established authors to exhibit at our inaugural event. Our event will be held on the 26th and 27th November 2022, Sydney Showground at Sydney Olympic Park. You'll have the opportunity to meet and network with other authors exhibiting, and to reach the readers coming through our doors with one goal in mind - books.

Fill in the form below to apply. Please note, applications are on a first in basis, with a limited number of authors for each genre. Please ensure your work contains no offensive or phobic material. All applications will be screened by Book Fair Australia staff, who will have the final say on whether or not a book is appropriate for inclusion in the event.

Applications will only be accepted through the below form. Any applications through other outlets, including phone, email and in person, will not be considered.

Book Fair Australia retains the right to refuse exhibition to an author or to ban a book from being shown or sold at their discretion.
