Digital first – longform journalism and non-fiction shorts.
Editia is a digital first publishing business focused on longform journalism and non-fiction shorts. The name Editia (pronounced “edeesha”) is derived from the Latin “editio” meaning the “publishing of a book” or “an announcement”. Our ebook and print on demand program provides the ideal platform for works that are too long for newspapers, magazines and websites, but not long enough to justify publication in a traditional printed book. Digitally, they can run to their natural length. Titles in our list are typically between 10,000 and 35,000 words long. They may be extensions of magazine features or newspaper articles; reinterpretations of academic, government or business research; or completely original works. They may contain hard news journalism, quirky and unusual feature-style content, or practical infotainment. Our first book, Crowdfund it! by digital expert Anna Maguire, was launched in September, 2012. Sydney Morning Herald literary editor Susan Wyndham described it as “Zeitgeisty” in an article about Editia’s launch in the Saturday Spectrum liftout. It is now in its third edition. We work with authors of titles in the fields of the arts, culture, literature, media, travel, technology, politics, business, economics, science, sport, crime, society, life and food, and seek to build our list in these areas. Editia is based at the Gorman Arts Centre in Canberra, Australia but all of our titles are available globally – and where possible, DRM-free.
