First Nations and POC Writers Count launch crowdfunding campaign

First Nations and POC Writers Count launch crowdfunding campaign

The group First Nations & People of Colour Writers Count have launched a crowdfunding campaign through the Australian Cultural Fund to raise funds for a landmark research project. The project aims to count the number of published works by First Nations and POC writers in 2018,  to highlight the lack of diversity in Australian publishing. 

The first FNPOC Count aims to raise $36,868.91 to cover the cost of the survey, payment of researchers and advisors, and the compilation of a final report. Organisers say the overall results will "inform publishing practices to provide greater opportunities for publication of First Nations and POC writers to develop their practice."
