Vagabond Press aims on becoming Australia's pre-eminent publisher of poetry in translation with a focus on Asia Pacific. At present we have published collections from several key Japanese poets including Shuntaro Tanikawa and Rin Ishigaki. In October 2012 we released the first English-language collection from the experimental Beijing-based poet and musician Yan Jun. In 2013 we will start a new Asian Pacific Poetry Series, publishing poets from Asia Pacific, starting with 3 Poet volumes from Vietnam, China, the Philippines and Japan. 

We are currently building up a community in Asia Pacific of writers, editors and translators. If you are a translator working in an Asian Pacific language and would like to get involved, please feel free to contact us at contact [@] vagabondpress [dot] net
