About the Blogs

The GSP Blogs are the home to emerging writers and editors who want their voices heard. Each blog is a dedicated space for writers to investigate their thoughts about the industry and the world around them.

We explore the Millennial & Gen-Z experience on our MZ Blog. Our Publishing Blog houses all things books and publishing. Book reviews by wonderful deep thinkers can be found in Reviews Blog. We even publish short fiction online.

Contact any of our dedicated blog editors below to pitch and submit your blog work.

We can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

The MZ Blog

Welcome to The MZ! The space all about the Millennial and Gen Z experience. At our core, we want to provide a space to reflect YOUR voices, discoveries and quirky observations that you just need to share!

Whether it be the joys (or horrors) of adulting or the return of the mullet (sigh), your ideas can find a home at MZ. As GSP is a teaching press, we feel it is an amazing opportunity to support emerging writers as they explore the uniqueness of their lives.

Not sure what to write? Have a look at our content list, it has all the topics we would love to hear about.

We look forward to what you have to say,

Book Reviews

Grattan Street Press is looking for reviews that promote the voices of new contemporary Australian works of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We are looking for reviews that probe language, themes and modern relevance. We are particularly interested in diverse voices within Australian publishing regarding both authors and reviewers.

Reviews should be between 500-800 words, but we can be flexible depending on the text and the angle of your review. Please do follow a conventional review format — introduce the book and its author at the beginning and summarise the plot before going into your reflections and analysis of the text.

Below is a sample list of texts, but we would love to hear from you what texts you think are interesting and fit our brief.

GSP Book Review Guidelines

If you are interested in reviewing a text, or have a suggestion for us, please send your pitches (and any questions) to Sam at: website@grattanstreetpress.com

Looking forward to hearing from you!

— Sam (Book Review Editor)
