Wakefield Press is South Australia's leading publisher of general books for adults, publishing about fifty books a year.

Our main areas of interest are true stories, gastronomy and culture. We do not accept submissions of poetry, fiction or children's books.

Unfortunately, we are currently overloaded and will not be accepting any unsolicited manuscripts until further notice. Please check back here for updates.

That said, entries are now open for the 2018 Wakefield Press Unpublished Manuscript Award (available to SA writers only). Book-length manuscripts of non-fiction, fiction and poetry are eligible. Check the Arts SA website for details.
