The Australasian Horror Writers Association (‘AHWA’) are excited to invite you to partner with us as we embark on our journey to take the horror and dark fiction genre out of the shadows and become more accepted to the mainstream population.

To date we have entered into agreements with publishers both across the Australasian region and the globe as we embark on getting the stories by the members of the Australasian Horror Writers Association published and more accepted around the world.

Almost 100 bookstore owners have agreed to stock our annual anthology moving forward. While our Australian Shadows Awards are preparing to stage their first live ceremony in 2018, and will have a stall – and conduct discussion panels in front of an estimated 30 000 exhibition goers at Supanova Pop Expo in Melbourne 2018.

However, with you as a partner we will be able to further expand the Australasian Horror Writers Association (‘AHWA’) and offer a bigger and increasingly supportive role to Australasian-based authors, publishers and artists of the horror and dark fiction genre.

The Australasian Horror Writers Association (‘AHWA’) are pleased to be inviting you to partner with us as we continue to move forward.

There is absolutely no upfront costs by becoming a partner of the AHWA. All we are seeking is the ability to help us expand.

This includes (but is not limited to):

  • Supply of paper;
  • Supply of resources;
  • Printing Supplies;
  • Merchandise by way of DVDs, Collectables etc. to be used as giveaways to our members;
  • Paperback and/or electronic books to include in membership packs or as downloads on our website for our members;

You may also provide flyers, brochures, discount coupons or other related materials to be included in membership packs distributed to new members, and current members when they renew their membership.

Additional Partnership Opportunities will also be investigated, and greatly appreciated.

One key area we are looking to exploit is the new creation of our Members Card, provided to all current and new members in which by quoting their member card number they receive a discount, or a special deal, through your business simply by being a member of our association.

The Australasian Horror Writers Association (‘AHWA’) also accepts donations to assist in growing our association.
