Membership of ACLAR helps to fund the organisation's activities, including our biennial conferences and the journal Papers: Explorations into Children's Literature. It also makes you part of an Australasian network of children's literature scholars and authors, and entitles you to discounted registration at ACLAR conferences. As a non-profit organisation, we rely on your support as active members.

Membership fees are $55 per annum for students/low-wage and $75 per annum for a full membership. Membership payments are accepted via Paypal. You do not require a Paypal account to use this method and can pay securely with your preferred credit card. The subscription method means that on the second anniversary of your membership, your fees will automatically be charged and your membership renewed. If you do not wish to rejoin ACLAR, you may cancel the subscription at any time.
