We are regional finalists in the British Book Awards!

Posted on February 15, 2023

We are amongst the regional finalists for the Small Press of the Year in the British Book Awards 2023, announced this morning, and we’re delighted! We are joined in the North of England by our friends at Bluemoose Books, Fly on the Wall Press, Carcanet and UCLan Publishing. Collectively, we are a diverse group of publishers “showing that even in a toughened climate, grassroots book making is alive and well,” according to Philip Jones, chair of judges and Editor of the Bookseller trade magazine.

In spite of challenging circumstances, from extraordinary price rises and supply-chain problems, we had an excellent year in 2022 and we’re looking forward to just as much to celebrate in the coming months. We are indebted to our brilliant authors, lucky to have such a great team to work with, and of course we are grateful to readers who enjoy and recommend our books to friends, as we are to bloggers and bookstagrammers, and above all to the fantastic booksellers who champion our books every day.

Thank you, one and all!
