Text Publishing
At Text we want to publish books that make a difference to people’s lives. We believe that reading should be a marvellous experience, that every book you read should somehow change your life if only by a fraction. We love the phrase ‘lost in a book’—that’s where we want our readers to be. You can’t get lost in a newspaper or a magazine or even a movie. But people get lost in books every day—on the train, on the beach, in bed. The world you enter courtesy of the writer is yours and yours only, even if the person next to you on the bus is reading exactly the same book. Our job is to do everything in our power to help our writers write the best books they can. We care passionately about the quality of our editorial work. Design and production matter to us because we want our books to be beautiful objects. Our Text Classics series is designed to unearth some of the lost marvels of Australian literature, and to bring these wonderful books to a new generation of readers. These books are milestones in the Australian experience. We have chosen them in the conviction that they still have much to say about us, undiminished in their power to delight, challenge and surprise. We publish a very broad range of fiction and non-fiction, international and local, books for adults and young adults. We are capable of falling in love with any book, and many of our authors have led us into fascinating territory we would never otherwise have discovered. We hope that somewhere on our list you will find the book that makes the world a different place for you.
