About Us

We are Melbourne-based independent multicultural and multilingual publisher dedicated to the publication of quality and innovative fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and memoir especially on and by the South Asian diaspora and Pacific communities.

Kula Press, an imprint of The Australia Today Network Pty Ltd, was founded on the auspicious day of Chaitra Navratri, Hindu New Year, in April 2022 with a view to provide fair representation to authors belonging to multicultural and multilingual communities in Australia. Our logo and name, suggested by Reema Sarwal, showcases the rainforest bird Kula (the collared lory). It is a species of parrot that is endemic to the islands of Fiji and adapts to urban landscapes. The beautiful Kula bird once was prized throughout western Polynesia for its vibrant plumage which was part of a strong maritime trading network.

After discovering a need for more diverse and colorful books in Australia, our team set out to re-imagine the publishing industry. At Kula Press, we seek to publish books that are of the highest quality, well-crafted and thought provoking. We want to publish enduring creative books that make a difference and positive social impact to people’s lives. Our team is dedicated to publishing socially diverse and engaged literature that fosters cross-cultural dialogue. The major themes that we are interested in includes but is not limited to publishing original creative works and translations that explore issues in South Asian Diaspora, Pacific communities, cross-cultural conflicts and understanding, the relationship between East and West, and inspiring journeys of migrants.

We hope to become your trusted publisher of choice — making meaningful connections and providing great books to our international readers.
