Southern Skies Publications is a traditional small press indie publisher. It was established by a writer who is passionate about bringing Australian and New Zealand fiction to print, and to work with other writers to bring their novels to life.
Southern Skies specialises in speculative fiction from down under: Science Fiction in all its many forms (Hard, Soft, Opera, Military, Dystopia, Apocalyptic, Alternate History, Time Travel), Fantasy (Dark, Epic, Heroic, High, Low), Speculative Fiction, and more. Lots more. We want to go to other worlds, times, places and realities. So take us there.
We are currently accepting submissions. Please follow the instructions given in the submission guidelines. If you have more to offer, check out our business model. We view each book as a partnership, and want to build a stronger community through working together.

Our office is in Gisborne, New Zealand. To get in touch, please contact us here.
Every book we publish presents an employment opportunity. Please see our Business Model page for a more detailed description of how we work. Contact us and we can speak more about upcoming voyages.
We welcome interns. Our model is a little different to most, as we view our interns as partners, not free labour. Intern efforts are rewarded with a share of the royalties of every book they contribute do. We are interested in interns to fulfill a variety of functions: manuscript selection, editing, proofreading, marketing, cover design, formatting.
In that way, we offer an invitation to students and lecturers of many disciplines, from the fine arts to business and economics. Marketing majors are welcome.
If you’re interested in hearing more about our internship program, use the contact form to inquire. Be sure to say a bit about yourself and what you can bring to the team.
