The Literature Centre (TLC) is a not-for-profit organisation in Fremantle, which nurtures quality Australian literature for children and young adults throughout Western Australia.  In 2015, our ‘Friends of The Literature Centre’ initiative was launched to formalise a programme for donors, fundraisers and volunteers passionate about supporting Australian children’s and young adult literature. Follow this link to our ‘Friends’ brochure for details.

We know we can help children and teenagers love to read and write. 

So many children leave our workshops itching to read another book, to want to write or illustrate their own stories, and to apply new skills in the classroom.  How wonderful for them to discover the sheer delight of curling up with a great book or entering the secret world of the author or illustrator.

TLC is unique in Australia.  We are a haven for those interested in children's and young adult literature.  Testimonials from teachers, students, and parents all point towards the valuable contribution we make in the community, and the profound effect our programmes can have on individuals.  We'd love you to feel a part of this.

We know that Australia’s authors and illustrators depend on us.

"The Literature Centre is not only a valuable resource for students and creators like myself, but an essential cultural hub in the landscape of Australian children’s literature."  Shaun Tan – Multi award winning Australian author and illustrator and recipient of the prestigious 2011 Astrid Lindgren Award.

Help us to sustain innovative literature and writing programmes, expand our reach into the regions, nurture our nation's current and emerging authors and illustrators, and preserve our unique centre and resources. We believe our work is worthy of support and we invite you to see our Centre - our galleries, residence (where authors and illustrators stay with us), original picture book exhibitions, archives, bookshop selling only Australian books, and more.

Making a tax-deductible donation to TLC is easy. 

We invite you to use one of the following options to make a donation, or contact Nicole Clarke or Lynne Kendrick at the Centre to discuss your gift further.
