Brandylane Publishers

Publisher info

Brandylane is a small, independent press, founded in 1985, that publishes fiction, non-fiction, poetry and children’s books. We believe books make a difference, that lives and the world are changed by the power of words and images, and that large publishing houses neglect a wealth of good writing. More and more authors are seeking the personal attention of flexible and accessible small presses like ours. This accessibility and partnership—where author and publisher work cooperatively for success—is part of what makes Brandylane so appealing to new and established writers.

We are interested in working with previously unpublished writers to bring new voices into print. If you have a book in mind or one finished, we’re interested in hearing from you. Agent not required.
