Wild Migration launches Stormbird Press
Founded in 2017, Stormbird Press is a new independent Australian publisher of quality literary fiction, commercial fiction and nonfiction with an environmental theme (eco-literature).
We love ideas and stories about the environment, animal protection, ecology, wildlife, and nature. Our titles all passionately communicate wisdom and inspiration about the diversity of plants and animal species, habitats and ecosystems of our home, Earth. We believe the diversity of life includes human and non-human cultures.
We are deeply connected to the global environmental movement. Stormbird Press is an imprint of Wild Migration who has worked for years to build the participation capacity of wildlife scientists, wildlife policy experts and civil society, from around the world, to secure international wildlife conservation. We know that if local communities are treated with respect and empowered with information they can be guardians of their biological and cultural heritage, and the wildlife they live with.
Stormbird Press provides our authors with skilled editing, publishing, inspiring packaging and dynamic promotion. We draw on the distribution might of Ingram’s international book distribution to maximise sales for our authors.
Stormbird Press will sell rights to overseas publishers, and audio and film producers.
Growing Stormbird Press will take time. Initially, the press will publish four titles in 2018 and another four in 2019. A small project team has been created to take the imprint forward, and three new titles are already commissioned.
