The Northern Independent Press Collection is a dedicated archive of works published by independent presses based in the north of England.
The collection celebrates and showcases the remarkable range of work and the spirit of experimentation in the publishers of the region. It includes prize-winning works of fiction, international works in translation, risk-taking poetry, and genre-defining short stories. It includes work by writers from the North as well as from across the world, from John Ashberry to Maya Chowdhry and Benjamin Myers to Ann Quinn.
For more information about the project, please contact Dr Naomi Booth on E: N.Booth@yorksj.ac.uk
