Creative Partnerships

Unlike most small to mid-size literary publishers in Australia we are not housed and supported by a university. If you're a university faculty or arts institution working in creative writing, literature, art or cultural studies, and want to give a small innovative press a home (anywhere in the world) and help us grow, please get in touch.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss creative partnerships with institutions such as university creative writing programs, journals, and bequests wanting to support new work in an ongoing way by becoming a major sponsor or even collaborate in the process as a creative partner.

One current example of a creative partnership is the work we do with the Helen Anne Bell Bequest Award for Poetry, which is run by the English Department of the University of Sydney. Through this partnership we have published Fiona Hile's Subtraction and Melinda Bufton's Moxie.

With sufficient support, we have the capacity to produce single titles, a new list or an entire imprint. While we love poetry, we're very keen to start producing new titles focused on contemporary society, politics and culture in Asia Pacific, as well continuing to develop lists in memoir and fiction. To survive and become sustainable, we need to secure ongoing support.

If your institution would like to suggest a project, please get in touch.

(Please note, creative partnerships are not open to individual authors wanting to publish their own work.)
