New, accessible literary fiction.

Novels that champion identity, community, current affairs and new takes on classic genres.

We love literary fiction, but we don't love the snobbery that gets associated with it. Great literary fiction comprises of stories that capture our imagination and resonate with us. Stories that shed light on modern issues, which use relatable and understandable language, which are about characters who speak for the communities we live in. 

We champion inclusion and believe diversity is about bringing together writers from all different backgrounds under one roster. 

Our books focus on Communities, Climate, and new takes on Classic genres such as Crime. We publish modern stories with modern twists and a fresh look. Literature is for everyone so our books are by wonderful storytellers and amazing emerging writers who make literary fiction accessible.
