The membership of the Black Phoenix Publishing Collective (bPPc) is made up of independent editors, writers and book specialists. The collective's membership changes over time, with some members joining for just a little while, others for longer. All collective members are qualified professionals with a range of experience and skills.

Black Phoenix publishes books that showcase emerging, developing and established writers. The collective is committed to bringing Australian readers and writers together in mutually enriching ways. The collective also provides an opportunity for emerging editors and book specialists to hone their skills and gain valuable industry experience.
