Independent Publishing Conference 2021

November 25November 27, 2021

The 2021 Independent Publishing Conference will be held over three days from 25–27 November. At this stage, we’re expecting to hold the conference entirely online, allowing remote participation from across Australia and around the world. However, we’re keeping a close eye on Covid restrictions and haven’t ruled out the possibility of an in-person component.

Thursday 25 November will be the academic research day, with the theme ‘Publishing and the Environment’.

Friday 26 November will be an industry-focused day, and Saturday 27 November will be devoted to practical workshop sessions. 

The 2021 SPN Book of the Year award will be presented on the evening of Friday 26 November.

The SPN Independent Publishing Conference is supported by Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund.
