About Palewell Press

Our Values

Palewell Press is an independent publisher of work in many different genres. Based in South West London, we are a founding member of the Changing Wor(l)ds network for publishing professionals and cultural activists, supporting and disseminating radically marginalised voices in literature. The Palewell Press team believes in building a sustainable world that can support itself and all its peoples, in which they share equally and are protected from abuse and injustice. We work with authors to build the best possible book and, by publishing it, help them share their ideas. Since 2016, an increasing number of our books are being written by or about refugees.

During our Submissions window, 1st June 2018 to 31st August 2018, we will be seeking new titles for publication in 2019. Here are the full Submission Guidelines. We aim to acknowledge all submissions within a working week and start reviewing them in early September. Eventually we will reply to everyone by email, so thank you in advance for your patience. Updates on the progress of submission reviews will appear in our monthly Newsletter.

For nothing is fixed, forever and forever and forever, it is not fixed; the earth is always shifting, the light is always changing, the sea does not cease to grind down rock. Generations do not cease to be born, and we are responsible to them because we are the only witnesses they have. The sea rises, the light fails, lovers cling to each other, and children cling to us. The moment we cease to hold each other, the sea engulfs us and the light goes out.
From James Baldwin "The Fire Next Time" (1963)
