Exciting, innovative, impressive.

Black Pepper is an exciting Australian publishing house, described by the Herald-Sun as ‘one of Australia’s boldest’. Since its emergence in 1995, Black Pepper has published some of Australia’s most innovative works of prose and poetry, winning awards, critical acclaim, and a significant share of the Australian market for literature. Black Pepper has released nearly seventy titles to date. These publications have launched, developed or renewed the writing careers of an impressive list of novelists, poets and writers of short fiction. The maturity of these works is reflected in the high quality of book design under the artistic direction of Gail Hannah.
