Harlequin Australia has been publishing quality fiction and non fiction for over forty years. 

HQ is the new home of diverse and compelling Australian fiction, designed to appeal to a readership of smart, curious women.

Our fiction list focuses on electrifying suspense, gripping family sagas, compelling historical stories and clever contemporary women’s fiction.

HQ’s tailored nonfiction list focuses on stories of ordinary Australians doing extraordinary things, women’s self-actualisation stories and selected wellness titles with a focus on women’s self-empowerment.

Presenting Workshop: 

Saturday 14 August 12:00pm – 1:00pm and 4:00pm – 5:00pm (industry panel)

Through its three imprints, HQ Fiction, Mira and Escape, Harlequin Books publishes more debut local fiction that any other Australian publishing house. But what makes a publisher look closer at your manuscript? Get the inside track on the tips and traps of submitting your manuscript to a publishing house (and make sure when you do submit, you avoid the common pitfalls that make us turn away from a manuscript).

Join us in our workshop as we cover the good, the bad and the ugly of the dreaded pitch; why and how some writing begs to be noticed; and be joined by some Harlequin authors who’ve stood in your shoes and come through it successfully.
