Cephalopress: The Writers' Press


Web Features



Poems and stories


Our opinions column from guest writers


Cephalopress is an independent publishing house formed of writers, operating out of Italy and the UK. Our aim is to help other writers who may be having difficulty in finding a home for their work based on the fact it might not be seen as ‘commercially viable’. Simply put, we want to publish good writing; real literature, the experimental and the brave, the forward-thinking in both form and content, the stuff mainstream publishing will rarely touch.

For more details on what exactly we’re looking for, see our submissions page and take a look at our web content.

neighbours wake
and tell you to
shut the fuck up...'
