One of Australia’s smallest publishing houses
Backroom Press is located in Broome, a small Kimberley town in the north of Western Australia, and was set up to publish entertaining and educational books from the region.
Corrugated Lines: A festival of words
Backroom Press is one of the main supporters of Corrugated Lines: A festival of words. Link to the program for 2016 is below.
Backroom Press was founded by three friends in 2006, and incorporated three years later as a Not-for-Profit Association.
We work to foster understanding between different cultural groups, support community educational projects and participate in public events such as festivals and workshops.
We aim to delight, entertain and enlighten through the publication of books that resonate with authentic Kimberley voices telling Kimberley stories.
Backroom Press is run entirely by volunteers, with a management committee of up to eight people.
Membership is open to all for a once-only fee of $10, and members are encouraged to assist with our work, including sales and marketing, promotions and special events.
The management committee is happy to discuss ideas from prospective authors and illustrators; however, we can only consider completed manuscripts for publication.
