Batchelor Press can publish, however they will charge a commercial rate (or
close to) if it¹s not a Batchelor student publication. The learner¹s guides
from the Wadeye region are part of a funded project (through MILR).
I would recommend hiring an independent designer, and providing page proofs
to Batchelor Press (although this can defeat the purpose of hiring a
publisher in the first place). BP lack the distribution network of IAD
Press, but can sell publications through their website.
