Independent Publisher Directory

Independent Publishers

Independent Publishers

As I said earlier in the week, I’ve listed all the independent publishers (including magazines) that I know of in the UK and Ireland onto a working document.

This is the draft .pdf http://www.indiepublishers.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/Independent-Publishers.pdf

This is just the starting list and I will be adding further details as I get them. Details such as contact addresses, social media, and a little bit of blurb about each one, also images if I have any.

All will be added as an alphabetical list but at the back of the book there will be an index for each specialism; e.g. children’s, poetry, crime, etc.

Each publisher that submits a #PublisherProfile will also get a fancy(ish) box-out within the directory.

This will be a document that will be updated regularly and become part of my Patreon tier rewards once enough work has been put into it to make it worthwhile.

Keep an eye out for updates.

What I’m up to

I’ve been working on a spreadsheet gathering information together to start developing a directory of UK and Ireland independent publishers, from zine makers to some of the most established publishers we have.

I’m developing this as a digital file that will be updated on a monthly basis adding new submissions, taking out publishers who are no longer with us, adding new publishers, and generally trying to keep it as current as possible. There will also be an annual printed version which will be as up to date as a static directory can be.

If you want to see how far I’ve got and see if you’re included in my ongoing list there is a pdf of my current list to look at the Publisher Feature Page file.

If you think you should be on it please let me know, also if any of the info I have for you is wrong please let me know.
