About Affirm Press

Affirm Press is a Melbourne-based publisher dedicated to publishing great Australian stories, big ideas, and the most engaging local and international authors.  

We publish a broad range of non-fiction books that always, in some way, have positive underlying messages. We also have a small but select list of fiction, which we are keen to expand. We aim to distinguish ourselves through our editorial commitment and sales focus. We're interested in building relationships, not one-offs, and we'll stretch friendships to get the best results, but never break them.

Publishing Director – Martin Hughes

Martin Hughes used to ‘work' for Lonely Planet as a writer, editor and photographer. He's had various other jobs in media and publishing in Ireland, the UK and Australia. He was editor of The Big Issue magazine, after which he set up Affirm Press.
