BOOKS THAT STAND THEIR GROUND
Founded in 2010, Wild Dingo Press is a vibrant and essential force in the Australian publishing landscape being a vehicle for bringing a personal viewpoint on issues affecting our world.
The Press brings to light the stories of individuals quietly doing extraordinary things, be it exposure of corruption and systemic flaws or the experiences of the disenfranchised, disempowered and dispossessed.
Shedding light on social issues and sharing the rich cultural output and traditions of those oft-discussed but denied a voice; Wild Dingo Press publishes memoir, narrative non-fiction, investigative journalistic non-fiction and some fiction that challenge readers and enrich them personally, intellectually and emotionally.
Wild Dingo Press is committed to contributing a valuable and necessary perspective to the discussion of social, cultural and political matters by giving control over representation back to the people affected.
Principally a publishing house for Australian-based authors, WDP commissions works as well as solicits manuscripts that meet our criteria of excellence and relevance. All titles are published in paperback and e-book formats.
About Catherine Lewis, Wild Dingo Press Founder
Catherine Lewis taught Sociology for 20 years at Monash University, one of her specialities being the Sociology of Education. While still an academic she became a partner in Insight Publications – a Melbourne-based educational publishing company of Secondary English resources – which she managed for 14 years. During this period, in 2010, she founded Wild Dingo Press which focuses on giving voice through high quality fiction and non-fiction literary works to the disenfranchised, to minority groups, and to promoting the voices of those working in socially, culturally and environmentally progressive endeavours. This year she has gone into partnership with Aboriginal writer, artist and academic, Tjanara Goreng Goreng, who have started an imprint of Wild Dingo Press called Deadly Dingo Books, specifically dedicated to publishing prose and poetry works of First Nations’ writers.
