Carcanet Press is our most courageous publisher. When you look at what they have brought out since their beginnings, it makes so many other houses seem timid or merely predictable.

Carcanet Shortlisted for Northern Small Press of the Year

Friday, 21 Feb 2020

Regional shortlist badge We're over the moon to share the news that we've been shortlisted for Northern Small Press of the Year in the British book Awards!

In total, 40 publishers are shortlisted across the English regions, and Scotland, Wales, and Ireland, including past regional winners Charco Press, Parthian Books and ourselves (see the full shortlist at The Bookseller).

Philip Jones, chair of the judges and editor of The Bookseller, said: “For a second year, this shortlist shows how publishing is thriving across the regions and countries of the United Kingdom and Ireland. The shortlist shows companies every bit as dedicated to their authors as the bigger publishers and with some notable success stories contained in their submissions. It is our pleasure to platform their hard work once again.”

The regional and country winners will be announced on 20th March. The overall winner will be announced at The British Book Awards on 18th May 2020.

Congratulations to all our fellow publishers who made the shortlist!
