Independent publishing is alive and well in sunny Melbourne. In fact, in September 2011 it moved into some pretty fancy premises.
2011 also marked Scribe’s 35th year as a home-grown, wholly independent trade-publishing house. What started off in 1976 as a desire on publisher Henry Rosenbloom’s part to publish ‘serious non-fiction’ on a limited scale has turned into a company with over a dozen staff members and two scouts that publishes 60–65 non-fiction and fiction titles a year.
We spend each day sifting through submissions and manuscripts from around the world, and commissioning and editing local titles, in an uncompromising pursuit of the best books we can find, help create, and deliver to readers.
We love what we do, and we hope you will too.
Until recently, Scribe has been happy to accept unsolicited and unagented manuscripts. However, due to a continually increasing number of submissions, we have had to adopt a more stringent policy. Read our manuscript submissions policy for more information.
