Downingfield Press Pty Ltd

Downingfield Press was established in 2017 with the objective of publishing authors whose voices would otherwise go unheard. We do not specialise in any particular genre, but rather focus on the cultural value of a particular piece of work.

Downingfield Press grew out of a 2013 project established by our Publisher to bring his own books to the market and transitioned to a publishing house beginning in 2017. We began accepting submissions from the general public in early 2020, when we finished our transition to full service publishing house.

We focus on publishing works which are of cultural and historical value rather than looking only at the profit potential and commercial viability of proposed books. We can’t always pay an advance on a book but all of our authors receive a fair proportion of royalties from their work.

We combine the best parts of traditional and modern publishing in our work. We have high standards in terms of content, design, and finished product and we utilise modern technology to keep our overhead low, allowing us to invest more into the promotion of the books we publish. This approach allows us to be both effective and agile in our operation.
