About Grattan Street Press

Grattan Street Press (GSP) is a small publisher and teaching press based at the University of Melbourne. Our goal is to uncover Australian voices by publishing a range of work including contemporary literature and trade non-fiction, and culturally valuable works that were previously out of print.

We launched in 2017 with the release of our first collection, the Colonial Australian Popular Fiction series. Since then, we have published Emma Jones’s Something to Be Tiptoed Around (Grattan Street Shorts), Inside Story: the First Ten Years with Inside Story, Uncontained: Digital Disconnection and the Meaning of Time by Robert Hassan, Welcome to Bellevue by Seth Robinson, Mer by Samantha Amy Mansell (Grattan Street Shorts) and most recently, This Is Us Now by Jacinta Dietrich. Watch this space for our latest release, to be revealed very soon.

GSP is an initiative of the Publishing and Communications program in the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne. It is a not-for-profit organisation led by publishing professionals and staffed by graduate students who receive guidance and hands-on experience of every aspect of the publishing process.

We seek to build strong relationships with the Australian literary and publishing community, partnering with local bookstores and authors for events when we can, and community organisations to co-publish books that contribute to public knowledge and discussion.

Do you want to be a published author? GSP encourages any emerging writers of literary fiction, non-fiction, novels, novellas, short stories, and experimental works, to submit their writing here for consideration.

Our books are available for purchase on our website, through online stores, and many independent bookshops.
