in case of emergency press (Victoria)

Anthologies (including short stories, essays, reviews, commentary)

We exist to service emerging writers who are sick of emerging and are ready for the full emergency.

We are a not-for-loss publisher. The poor sods who do the work are not interested in making money; we just don’t want to lose money. This means we only hold small quantities of stock and print on demand.

We publish whatever we like. It has to be (sort of) literary. What does that mean? Well, one of the poor sods previously mentioned has to like it enough to want to publish it, and to fight the others, if necessary. Not a very satisfactory answer, perhaps, but the best we can offer.

We see our role as being a springboard publisher for new writers and worthy content.
