ABPA Membership

WELCOME, membership of the Australian Bush Poets Association (ABPA) is comprised of writers, performers and individuals who are interested in bush poetry and enjoy written and live stories in rhyme and metre. If you have an interest in this piece of Australian culture called Bush Poetry then why not join us? 

The objective of the Australian Bush Poets Association is to foster and encourage the growth of Bush Poetry in Australia. By definition, Australian Bush Poetry is metred and rhymed poetry about Australia, Australians and/or the Australian way of life.

The ABPA keeps in touch with our members through this web-site (and forum) and a bi-monthly magazine of Bush Poetry news, events, results of written and performance competitions as well as publishing contemporary bush poetry. Many members have books, CDs and other products. These can be advertised in the magazine. For rates, click here

Membership is for a calendar year from 1st January to 31st December.
Annual membership includes all magazines (including back issues) for the current calendar year.
Members joining after October will receive the year’s remaining issue as well as all magazines for the following calendar year.
