The Writer's Press: Uqp's First Fifty Years

In the half century since 1948, UQP has published two thousand books - from cutting-edge scholarship to acclaimed literary fiction, poetry, popular memoir, history and biography, children's books and Indigenous writing. A unique feature of the list has been the high proportion of original titles and new writers. UQP published first books by Peter Carey, David Malouf, Kate Grenville, Rodney Hall, Olga Masters, Roger McDonald, Murray Bail and Marion Halligan, among others - writers whose work is now read around the globe. A blend of memoir, essay and interview, this commemorative publishing history tells the inside story of the Press that launched the brilliant careers of so many renowned writers.The long list of poets and novelists who have appeared under the UQP banner over the past fifty years is living proof of the liveliness and daring the Press has shown in seeking out the best of our writing. the names speak for themselves, but also for the staff who over the years have made UQP such a vital force in the flowering of Australia.David Malouf
