Contemporary Small Press

We make audiobooks for publishers. Our skills include casting, abridgement, directing, studio production, editing, checking and mastering.

Highlights include Antigone by Ali Smith (after Sophocles), read by Ali Smith, Lud in the Mist by Hope Mirrlees read by Eleanor Bron, Melvyn Bragg’s Cumbrian Trilogy read by Malcolm Sinclair (who is currently reading Belioz’s memoirs) and Beasts of No Nation by Uzodinma Iweala, read by Simon Manyonda.

Meanwhile we are revolutionising the audiobook market. We are developing a scheme to support the production of audiobooks for the small presses, to make available great books by the world’s contemporary and late writers, often in translation. Soon you can hear wonderful books without a commercial bias.
