Spinifex Press

Spinifex Press

Spinifex Press is an independent Australian feminist press that was co-founded in 1991 by Susan Hawthorne and Renate Klein.

We publish innovative and controversial feminist books with an optimistic edge. Our namesake is an Australian desert grass that holds the earth together.

titles cover a wide range of subjects from politics to mythology, humour to international relations, ecology to relationships, literary fiction to cultural critique, women’s health to poetry, as well as specialist lists on African, Asian and lesbian writing. We have published writers from every continent including Indigenous authors from many countries.

Our reach is from the local to the international, and we have distribution in Australia, New Zealand, North America and Britain.
Always technologically innovative, Spinifex was one of the first Australian publishers to tackle the challenge of digital publishing, and around 80% of our books are available as eBooks.
