About the Publisher
Owl Publishing is a small independent publisher founded in the nineties by Greek-Australian Helen Nickas with an aim to publish a selection of literary works by Greek-Australians. Being a multicultural country, Australia can benefit from the wide diversity of its literature, including the ‘dual vision’ of its hyphenated writers.
Owl’s publications include poetry, prose fiction, anthologies and literary criticism. Some of Owl’s books are also published in bilingual form, aiming to cultivate and promote bilingualism, while others are monolingual (Greek, or English) depending on the target readership.
Owl publications have been reviewed in reputable Australian newspapers, journals and magazines such as The Age, The Weekend Australian, Meanjin, Meridian, Australian Book Review, Sydney Review of Books, and abroad in Journal of Modern Greek Studies, World Literature Today and others.
In a review of an Owl publication, Thomas Shapcott wrote that Owl Publishing is “… an enterprise that widens horizons...” (Australian Book Review, August 2000)
While all publications can be bought, or ordered, from good shops around Australia, Owl is not commercially driven and its aim is to publish books of high quality by, and about, Greek-Australian writers at affordable prices.
