MidnightSun Publishing

MidnightSuninversmono-M

MidnightSun Publishing has grown out of a disenchantment with the established publishing houses in Australia. We know there are plenty of fabulous manuscripts about unusual topics floating around, but publishing new and unknown writers poses a big risk. MidnightSun is prepared to take that risk. We want our readers to be entertained. We want to challenge, excite, enrage and overwhelm. Therefore, we publish books in any genre that have touched us in some way.

Publisher Anna Solding, author of The Hum of Concrete will be representing MidnightSun Publishing at Queermance this year. You can find her at our Meet the Publishers Afternoon Tea, our Queer Identities panel and at our Sunday night Author Showcase.

A is for Asexual. B is for Bi. I is for Intersex. T is for Trans. When talking about Queer fiction it’s very easy to get stuck on fiction about gay men, or fiction about lesbians. Queermance itself was the brainchild of two authors of gay fiction, and sometimes it’s worth reminding ourselves that there are other letters and colours out there in the alphabet soup or quilted bag. Join your Sunday Host Beck Mitchell, Asexual Awareness Advocate and avid reader Hespa, Amanda Marx, Anna Solding and Hazel Edwards OAM as they talk about writing as and about some of the queer identities that are even harder to find in queer fiction. Where are the opportunities, what are the common misunderstandings and how can you be a supportive ally?
