Meet the editors
Mslexia editor Debbie Taylor chairs a panel discussion with three leading independent press editors. Indie presses have a reputation for discovering new voices and nurturing emerging talent. And if you write short stories, they are the go-to place to submit your collection.
And Other Stories publishes the best in contemporary writing, including many translations. Launched with a select list in 2011, authors include Best Translated Book Award winner Yuri Herrera, Man Booker shortlisted Deborah Levy, Guardian First Book Award shortlisted Juan Pablo Villalobos, Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction shortlisted Helen DeWitt and Independent Foreign Fiction Prize shortlisted Juan Tomás Ávila Laurel.
Influx Press is committed to publishing innovative and challenging fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction from across the UK and beyond. Founded by Gary Budden and Kit Caless Influx publishes stories from the margins of culture, specific geographical spaces and sites of resistance that remain under explored in mainstream literature. Since 2012 they have published 13 titles, ranging from award-nominated debuts and site-specific anthologies to squatting memoirs and radical poetry.
Team Angelica launches books that are provocative, original and inspirational. They present and represent the un- and under-represented, the outsider; and enable and encourage new and diverse voices, especially voices that are gay, queer, black and of colour; to put out work that is transformative, and that celebrates difference and diversity and the maverick spirit.
Limited to 50 places.
