RWA Flooded Communities Book Appeal

RWA Flooded Communities Book Appeal


We’ve all seen the devastation the recent Queensland floods have wrought and have wondered how we can help. We know that for many affected families, books will not be high on their priorities list for some time to come.

We also know how valuable books can be in providing time out when reality gets tough.

With the aid of some wonderful volunteers, we’ve put together a Romance Writers of Australia Flooded Communities Book Appeal.

What we need?
FICTION BOOKS! Romance books, children’s books, young adult books, genre books, whatever – either new or in sparkling condition.

Please send them to:
RWA Flooded Communities Book Appeal
PO Box 1717

Noosaville Post Office

Noosaville BC

Queensland 4566

When to send them?
Now! And any time over the next few months. The books will be boxed and delivered to the appropriate libraries/schools/neighbourhood centres/community centres in batches as soon as the communities are ready to receive them. We’ll be liaising with councils, libraries and schools to ensure this is done appropriately. Feel free to pop a note inside, or if you’re an author, sign it.



If you have a question about donations, email Jess Anastasi:

If you work in a library / council / community centre / school in a flood affected area, email Rachel Bailey:

  1. Congratulations and thankyou for organising such a great assistance. I have some books to send in.

    • Mandy, since you’re in Brisbane, we now have a physical drop off point at Carindale (and more coming) if you’d prefer that to posting the books. Email Jess on the address above if you’re interested.


  2. I’m very proud of being a member of RWAus and now I have another reason to be proud. Good job everyone.

    I’ve written an adventure/romance novel and will send you a couple copies. It’ll take a week or two as I’m in America.
