Interactive Press is a leading poetry imprint in Australia, publishing up to eight titles each year from a highly competitive selection process. The imprint also publishes an impressive list of award-winning novels and short fiction. Adult non-fiction titles and trade fiction are published under Glass House Books, while IP Kidz releases our children's titles.

Literary merit is crucial in deciding who we publish as an Interactive Press author, but we must also feel that your work will have a commercial audience. Make a case in your initial submission to us, telling us why you think there's a market for your manuscript. Do your homework and show us that you understand the market and your manuscript's place in it.

Established authors are published in our Literature Series; less experienced authors may be published in our award-winning Emerging Authors Series.

Because IP is dedicated to excellence, manuscripts are reviewed and edited often to exacting standards that equal or exceed those provided by "mainstream" publishers. IP titles have won or been commended in national competitions such as the Queensland Premier’s Award, the Western Australian Premier's Award, the Newcastle Poetry Award, the Anne Elder Award, the Somerset National Poetry Prize, Adelaide Festival Literary Awards, the Mary Gilmore Award and the Steele Rudd Award.

While we consider submissions from 1 March - 1 December, most Interactive Press titles are chosen in two intakes annually – at the end of March and the end of August – through our Rolling IP Picks Program.

Please check out our guidelines for complete details on what we expect in a submission and the applicable reading fees.
