University of Queensland Press in Trouble

The Brisbane Courier-Mail reports today that the University of Queensland press is in a spot of trouble, with a large finiancial debt leading to a wide-ranging staffing restructure, and publishing down-grade. UQP have published such authors as Peter Carey and David Malouf, but with Carey moving on to follow his favourite editor and Malouf in "semi-retirement" the press has found it tough of late. Now a number of organisations, such as the Literature Board and the Australian Society of Authors along with individual authors of the standing of Malouf, Tom Keneally and Kate Grenville have demanded an explanation and a re-evaluation.
