About Us

Melbourne Books is an independent publishing house founded by David Tenenbaum, who has over twenty years of publishing experience.

As a company, we strive to help our authors tell their stories — be they stories about an influential figure, a personal journey, an imagined adventure, or the history of a place or organisation. Over the years we have published an array of titles, ranging from academic works and books on art, to biographies, novels and how-to books. Our commitment to storytelling is especially evident in our annual anthology Award Winning Australian Writing, which showcases the winners of both established and small-scale short story and poetry competitions throughout the country.

If you are interested in having us publish your manuscript, head to the Submissions page for more information.
