the book doctor: non-fiction publishers

 

 

We maintain this list as a first resource for writers. We update it when publishers or visitors tell us of new listings or obsolete ones.

We strongly recommend The Australian Writer's Marketplace, available in print or by online subscription, to all authors looking for a comprehensive guide to publishers and publishing.


 

The headings below are fluid, and many publishers accept manuscripts from other genres as well as those they specialise in.

Always check the submission information on the publisher's website before submitting.


last updated: August 2015.
Although we have limited this list to publishers with web sites, don't ignore the many small independent presses that often publish works not considered by larger establishments. Many of them are members of the
Small Press Network. A list of SPN members, with information on what they publish and how they may be contacted, is available on the SPN website.
