Arachne Press is a micro publisher of (award-winning!) short story anthologies, poetry and a (Carnegie Medal nominated!) young adult novel. 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, our regular event The Story Sessions, workshops and all things to do with writing.

We’ll try anything and recently produced an animated trailer, and have hosted an art exhibition for our cover artists – occasionally we have live music at our events too. In December we ran our first Solstice Shorts, a one day festival of short stories and folk music on the shortest day of the year, on the Greenwich Meridian, with generous support from the Arts Council and a lot of friends.
We are currently working on a shorter event to celebrate Magna Carta’s 800 anniversary, in June.
Arachne Press is owned by Cherry Potts author of two collections of short stories and contributor to and editor of several anthologies.
Arachne Press is committed to showcasing talented writing and treating writers as they would wish to be treated, which includes paying them for their work, and making sure that their books look gorgeous!
