Comma Press

Comma Press is a not-for-profit publishing initiative dedicated to promoting new writing, with an emphasis on the short story. It is committed to a spirit of risk-taking and challenging publishing, free of the commercial pressures on mainstream houses.

They have recently been in the press after appointing actor Maxine Peake and writer Courttia Newland as its inaugural patrons. Comma Press commented that Peake and Newland were selected for the roles as they appreciate the importance of bringing new perspectives from the margins into wider public consciousness and understand the value of art and literary translation in promoting internationalism and cultural exchange.

Comma Press also run several innovative digital projects such as Comma Film and two apps. MacGuffin is a new self publishing platform for fiction and poetry. They have also created an app called ‘Litnav‘ which allows users to travel the globe by reading short stories set in a range of cities.
