Contemporary Small Press

Arachne Press


Arachne Press is a micro publisher of (award-winning!) short story and poetry anthologies and collections, fantasy novels for adults and young adults including a (Carnegie Medal nominated!) young adult novel, a photographic portrait book, and an illustrated children’s story book. We are expanding our range all the time, but the short form is our first love. We keep fiction (poetry, non-fiction) live, through readings, (see below for info about our annual literature and music festival, Solstice Shorts) workshops and all things to do with writing. We also video a lot of our events to make them more widely available, and some of them are BSL interpreted.
