Margaret River Press

About Us

Margaret River Press operates both in Margaret River and at the Centre for Stories in Perth, Western Australia. Its small team of staff, editorial members and ever growing interns, love the feeling that comes from publishing not in pursuit of profit, but in a sense of curiosity about people, places, and the stories they hold.

Margaret River Press is a press that's strongly committed to nurturing and supporting writers at all stages of their career by:

  • Supporting their development through online and face-to-face promotion, networking, and community building around literature and the short story
  • Featuring them in our annual short story anthology
  • Publishing their work after a rigorous, consultative editorial process.

We believe strongly in the author/publisher partnership and work closely with our writers in the production and long-term promotion of their writing. Our natural and emotional environment are reflected in the design and production of our publications, be they high quality coffee-table books, or the well-chosen words of our debut short story authors and novelists. We engage highly qualified editors, proof readers, award winning designers and the best printers to ensure that the book you read feels, looks, and reads right.

We publish high-end literary fiction, crime, the best short stories currently being written in Australia and beautifully designed leisure and lifestyle titles.

More than anything, Margaret River Press offers an engaging, approachable alternative to mass publication, selecting those titles that speak to us, and bringing them to you, the reader.
