Interactive Press is IP’s flagship literary imprint, specialising in high quality literary titles. It was launched in Brisbane in September 1997 with the publication of our first title, Hemingway in Spain.
We publish by conventional print, print on demand (POD) and various eBook formats to our global partners such as Amazon, Apple, Google, Gardners, Barnes & Noble, Overdrive, eBooks Corp and Wheelers, making our titles accessible to audiences world-wide.
Interactive Press publishes an impressive list of award-winning poetry, novels and short fiction. We are highly selective about the titles accepted under this imprint, as well as for our adult non-fiction, trade fiction and young adult titles, which are published under Glass House Books. IP Kidz is the imprint for 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.
Because IP is dedicated to excellence, we edit manuscripts to exacting standards that equal or exceed that provided by “mainstream” publishers. IP titles have won or been commended in 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.
