Ginninderra Press publishes Bone Picker by Thomas Simpson

Thomas Simpson, a PhD candidate at Deakin, has recently had his collection of poetry Bone Picker published by Ginninderra Press… check details here: 

From the Eyre Highway to the tiled lanes of Lisbon, and the muted Australian suburbs at the beginning of a pandemic, Bone Picker presents vignettes of place and memory that draw on senses of belonging, movement and conflict. These imagistic glimpses into everyday life and work highlight the beauty and intrigue in the quotidian.

The Ginninderra Press philosophy

We believe that all people – not just a privileged few – have a right to participate actively in cultural creation rather than just being passive consumers of mass media. Our culture is revitalised and enriched when everyone is encouraged to fulfil their creative potential and diminished when that creative potential is stifled or thwarted. We love to observe the transformative possibilities for people when they see their work published and acknowledged. Getting published can and does change lives.

From Ginninderra website:

Ginninderra Press is an award-winning independent publisher based in Port Adelaide, South Australia. In 2021, we celebrated 25 years of publishing.

Ginninderra is part of Canberra’s Belconnen area, where Ginninderra Press operated for its first twelve years before moving to Port Adelaide in 2008. Ginninderra is an Aboriginal word said to mean ‘throwing out little rays of light’.

Described in The Canberra Times as ‘versatile and visionary’, Ginninderra Press was set up in 1996 to provide opportunities for new and emerging authors as well as for authors writing in unfashionable genres or on non-mainstream subjects. In the words of one of our authors, we are ‘a small but significant publisher of small but significant books’. Many of our titles have won awards (to see a full list, click here).

Ginninderra Press recognises the fact that many people have good ideas for books but cannot get them published, either because of their inexperience in preparing manuscripts or because the potential sales are insufficient to interest a conventional publisher. Ginninderra Press offers expert editing and proofreading, as well as design and lay out services. To see submission guidelines, click here.

All our books are now print on demand and all (except for our chapbook series – Pocket Poets and Picaro Poets) are available through worldwide sales channels (including Amazon and Book Depository). Ebook editions of most of our titles are also available worldwide through Amazon, Book Depository and other online sellers.
