Fair play and good sportsmanship go hand-in-hand. Something we believe
in so strongly, we've named our publishing house after it. Fair Play Publishing was founded in 2016 by Bonita Mersiades.

Fair Play Publishing is also our principal imprint, and is dedicated to non-fiction books about sport, most notably football (soccer).

Popcorn Press is our imprint dedicated to fiction. 

Pepper Press is our imprint for books about life - memoirs, culture, diversity. 

We accept submissions of manuscripts relevant to any of our imprints to email hello@fairplaypublishing.com.au. We will respond to submissions within three months of receipt.
