Arachne Press is a micro publisher of (award-winning!) short story and poetry anthologies and collections, fantasy novels for adults and young adults including a (Carnegie Medal nominated!) young adult novel, a photographic portrait book, and an illustrated children’s story book. 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 also video a lot of our events to make them more wildely available.
We try to be imaginative in our events and marketing, and produce animated trailers and idents, and have hosted an art exhibition for our cover artists – occasionally we have live music at our events too. In December we run the Solstice Shorts Festival, 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.
Arachne Press is owned by Cherry Potts author of a novel and two collections of short stories and contributor to and editor of multiple 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!
