A press run by writers, for writers

We are Cephalopress, an independent publishing house formed of writers,

operating out of Brighton, UK, established in 2018.

At heart, we’re interested in literature that explores the highs and lows of human experience. We publish poems, short stories, and novellas.


Our aim is to publish work that resonates with people, questions societal beliefs, pushes boundaries, and makes people think. We want to publish brave, often experimental works, that sit proudly outside mainstream publishing.


Cephalopress welcomes submissions from everyone, including new and established authors. We have a special interest in uplifting voices that are outside mainstream publishing, including women, queer people, and people of colour.

See our submissions page for more information on what we are looking for.

Thanks for stopping by.
