about John Leonard press

We are home to some of Australia’s finest new and established poets: twentyseven single-author titles and one anthology have appeared since August 2006 to considerable acclaim.


Jacinta Le Plastrier is the publisher at JLP. Conor Hutchison is associate publisher.

John Leonard is commissioning editor. He taught at Monash and James Cook universities, and is the well-known anthologist of Seven Centuries of Poetry in English (OUP). He has also edited 5 landmark Australian anthologies, including the recent full survey, The Puncher & Wattmann Anthology of Australian Poetry, 2009, and Young Poets: An Australian Anthology, 2011. (Several John Leonards inhabit the literary globe. Note that ours is not a poet, and has no other website)

Submissions for Publication

John Leonard Press now has titles commissioned for publication until the end of 2015. We regret that, until further notice, submissions can not be considered.
