We're a small independent press struggling to survive. We have a lot of overheads to cover with rent on our small, windowless home in Marrickville key among them.
Our studio is located at the wonderful Mothership Studios, an artist co-operative cinema and gallery space. It is wholly independent, host to up to 30 working artists and very much our home. Our small but very functional studio is where we keep several thousand wonderful books and where we our do mail outs from. From time to time, we also hold launches in the space. Without the studio, there would not be a press.
Making rent is a constant struggle. We've been fortunate to have support from the Australia Council for the Arts over the last two years. Our rent is paid up until April, but after that we'll be back to the hand to mouth struggle.
So on the off chance there's a philanthropist out there who wants to keep us housed for a year, here's your chance to do so in a single hit. We're not afraid to ask as we want to survive and keep publishing.
