Exciting news for USC Creative Writing Students!

Harbour Publishing House, boutique publisher based on the New South Wales South Coast and specialising in children’s literature, has just announced an incredible partnership with the University of the Sunshine Coast – they will publish one book each year from students in the creative writing program:

University staff from USC’s School of Communication and Creative Industries will shortlist six manuscripts or book proposals from students each year, which Harbour’s publishing team will then consider for publication. Submissions can be from any genre, but will need to have broad commercial appeal and ‘a fresh voice’.

As booksellers, we know that breaking into publishing and finding an audience is no small feat; rarely do publishers come looking for you, and at your local university! Submissions will be open soon, with a shortlist to be announced later this year. Harbour will publish the first book from the partnership in 2019.
