The Small Press Network (SPN) is a representative body for small and independent Australian publishers. It was formed in 2006 as the Small Press Underground Networking Community (SPUNC) to promote independent publishing and support the principle of diversity within the publishing industry as a vital component of Australian literary culture.
SPN is a not-for-profit incorporation based in Melbourne; its activities are overseen by a board of directors. Since February 2009 Zoe Dattner has been General Manager thanks to funding support from CAL and the Australia Council.
SPN is committed to working to ensure the continued viability of the independent publishing sector in Australia by facilitating collaborative initiatives, networking opportunities, and general communication between small and independent publishers.
