Stringybark Publishing is small bespoke publisher based in Springrange, New South Wales, a rural locality outside Canberra.
Created in 2010 by award-winning author and editor, David Vernon, it specialises in publishing short print run and niche publications that large companies consider to be non-commercial. Stringybark publishes family histories, poems, memoirs, local histories, novels, novellas, how-to-guides, travel tales and short story anthologies.
Since 2010 Stringybark Publishing has also sponsored the national Stringybark Stories short story awards. This sponsorship has led to many emerging authors getting a leg up into the cut-throat market for writing. Since its inception, Stringybark Stories has sponsored the publication of 41 uniquely Australian short story anthologies and given away over $33,000 in prize money.
