Australian Poetry is throwing a Party and you and a guest are invited! As part of this year’s annual AP SubscriberDrive 2022, for the first time ever, each and every new or renewing Subscription, received from 28 November to midnight 10 December, will receive a SECOND free one-year AP Digital Subscription. This is for you to give to another person as a gift.


AP Subscribers are close to an all-time high but we still want to do this for you to express community, goodwill and give access to those who may not be able to afford subscriptions to journals at this time.


Jacinta, as our AP CEO, will be in touch with each and every one of you to get the details of the person for whom you will nominate this gift to be given. She will also send on a personal Thank-you, as every single one of our Subscribers is so deeply appreciated.


You can help us keep making poetry matter.


BUT there are many more Prizes—bookish and non-bookish– for new or renewing Subscribers if they join or rejoin over this time. Each new or renewing Subscription goes into draws for this incredible range of Prizes. AP, the AP Board, and Jacinta would like to thank our such generous Sponsors, who include the poetry publishers across Australia, and other amazing supporters of what we do. Outside books, the purchase of some prizes have been assisted by donations from AP Board Directors.
