Why subscribe?

This newsletter will be the core of a directory of independent publishers and presses, with each having a post all to themselves which will include the name of the press, the address and other contact details, people to contact, submission details, payment details, and if I’ve read something by them, my thoughts on the press.

My posting schedule will be:

  • Monday: an updated list of jobs

  • Wednesday: an updated list of upcoming events

  • Friday: the main round-up post

  • Saturday: an updated open submissions post

  • Indie Publisher detail posts will be posted as and when ready

Reviews, previews, submission windows, events, all of these will be put in a newsletter when I’ve enough information, but will try for a weekly free newsletter.

It is also going to be an irregular newsletter about bookshops, books, podcasts, people, all with a bookish leaning.

Independent Publisher and Press Directory

Each link takes you to the directory page for an independent publisher, press, or magazine. These pages are only accessible to paid subscribers.

This list is updated constantly and will be pinned to the top and any major changes will be mentioned in the weekly newsletter.
