Vagabond Press is an independent literary press that was established in 1999. For two decades we have published a range of established and emerging poets from Australia and more recently Asia-Pacific and the Americas. Our books have won many of the major literary prizes in Australia, been praised by critics and taught at universities around the world. Vagabond Press aims to build a transnational context for our writers and to continue to support the production and promotion of innovative new writing and literature in translation.

Vagabond Press acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live, and recognises their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

Vagabond Press is grateful for generous funding received over recent years from the Australia Council for the Arts, which has allowed us to continue publishing.
