The Cuba Press

What we do

A tough publishing climate and a small reading population means New Zealand publishers need to be increasingly flexible and collaborative in their approach to making books. The Cuba Press is a hybrid press, which means we have two ways of funding our books.

We select manuscripts the same way whichever way we fund them, choosing strong writing and great Aotearoa New Zealand stories that we think will make the best books. We market and distribute our books in the same way whoever pays for them, with our logo on the spine and our reputation on the line. We are not a platform for authors who want to self publish. We like a balance of titles in our annual list, ranging over fiction, non-fiction and poetry, as well as memoir through our Wayfarer imprint and children’s books through our Ahoy! imprint. We choose manuscripts we will enjoy working on and with authors who want to work hard with us to get their books into the world.
