About local

Local Publishing Co. was launched in Sydney in 2018. Our first publication was Local East, a glossy lifestyle magazine for the Eastern Suburbs. Each month 50,000 copies of the magazine are printed and distributed across Sydney’s East.

In February 2019, Local Publishing Co launches Local Creative, a content and design wing that offers high-quality marketing materials for all manner of business.

Local Publishing Co. will expand in 2019 to include Local North, a magazine to be distributed on Sydney’s north shore and northern beaches.

Local Publishing Co was founded by journalist Elizabeth Meryment after more than 20 years in metropolitan journalism, at newspapers including The Australian and The Daily Telegraph.

The publishing house is staffed by leading media figures including designer Trevor Timms (ex-Sunday Telegraph, ex-Herald Sun) and subeditor Frances Hibbard (ex-Gourmet Traveller).

Our publications support and promote professional locals, including young and emerging writers, and professional local photographers.

Our publications are made and printed in Sydney.
