Hardie Grant Books publishes a wide variety of Australian titles on subjects including food and wine, popular and literary non-fiction, memoir and auto/biography, politics, parenting, business, business and finance, new age, and literary and popular fiction.
Due to the sheer number of submissions we have received in recent months, Hardie Grant Books is not currently accepting unsolicited manuscripts. All manuscripts already submitted will be processed and will receive a response in due course. Manuscripts submitted by literary agents will still be accepted.
There are a number of organisations that help writers improve their skills and achieve publication. The Australian Society of Authors has a very informative website at www.asauthors.org, and is a good place to start.
The Australian Publishers Association (ph: 02 9281 9788) has a publication for sale, Directory of Members, which may help you ascertain which publishers would be most interested in your work. Each state and territory also has a writers centre and a variety of writers groups. These groups are a great resource for information, support and encouragement.
