The literary world is filled with brave souls who take a risk and publish an outlier oeuvre or an obscure writer. Instinct, experience, courage and downright stubbornness often result in an unexpected success or a dismal failure.

Literary Braveheart, Roger Steele will talk with publishing pals who have thrown themselves and their publishing business full force at failure and triumphantly missed: Chris Holdaway of Compound Books, publishing Jay Nieuwland; Murdoch Stephens of Lawrence & Gibson Publishing, publishing Bran Gnanalingam’s book 'Sprigs', and Ash Davida Jane of We are Babies Press, publishing Rachel O’Neill and Nicole Titihuia Hawkins, who won the Crystal Arts Trust Best First Book Award for Poetry at the 2022 Ockham NZ Book Awards for her book ‘Whai’.
