Galley Beggar Press

GALLEY BEGGAR PRESS is an independent publisher committed to publishing daring, innovative fiction and narrative non-fiction.

Founded in 2012, we are particularly keen to support writers of great literary talent writing outside the norm, who push the boundaries of form and language. Over the past eight years, our authors – from Lucy Ellmann (Ducks, Newburyport), Preti Taneja (We that are young), to Eimear McBride (A Girl Is A Half-formed Thing), Alex Pheby (Lucia), and beyond – have gone on to be longlisted, shortlisted, and the winners of over twenty of the world’s most prestigious literary awards, including the Booker Prize, the Women’s Prize for Fiction, the Wellcome Book Prize, the Goldsmiths Prize, the Desmond Elliott Prize, the James Tait Black Prize for Fiction, the Jan Michalski Prize, the Folio Prize, the Orwell Prize for Political Fiction, the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize, and the Frank O’Connor Short Story Prize.
