WELCOME TO PENDLETON PRESS
Based in London and founded in 2019, Pendleton Press is an independent publishing house working hard to give our authors the best chance of success in an increasingly crowded marketplace
At a time when publishers and literary agents are closing their doors even to authors with a proven track record, we continue to accept unsolicited work from both new and established writers. To help them with the sometimes daunting and nerve-wracking task of sending their cherished work to a publisher, we endeavour to make our submission process as friendly and efficient as possible. You can read more about how to submit a book to us here.
Pendleton Press will publish original fiction and non-fiction, with a focus on risk-taking, imaginative novels and innovative, thought-provoking non-fiction. We are looking for books which don’t fall into easy marketing categories and don’t compromise their intelligence or style to fit in with trends. We are passionate readers, and we believe that there are many more who share our appetite for bold, original and ‘difficult’ fiction. We want to provide a home for great writing which isn’t being picked up by the mainstream.
