UQP is one of Australia’s leading publishing houses. Established in 1948 as a wholly owned subsidiary of The University of Queensland, UQP has consistently produced culturally significant works across genres such as fiction, non-fiction and poetry, as well as children's and young adult books.

UQP is known for publishing literary works, poetry and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories. We have launched the careers of some of Australia’s most highly respected authors, from Peter Carey, winner of the Booker Prize; David Malouf; Kate Grenville and Janette Turner Hospital to more recently established and award-winning authors such as Melissa Lucashenko, Tony Birch, Larissa Behrendt and Mirandi Riwoe.

We create books that enrich and inspire readers and make a major contribution to the fabric of arts and literature in Australia and the world. We proudly connect artists, readers, writers and arts organisations and passionately advocate for the value of books to the human experience. UQP is also Queensland’s only major publishing house with domestic and international distribution.
