About Palewell Press

Our Values

Palewell Press is an independent not-for-profit publisher based in South West London, focusing on books that foster justice, equality and environmental sustainability. We believe 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. Since 2016, an increasing number of our books have been written by or about refugees. We are proud to be a founding member of the Changing Wor(l)ds network for publishing professionals and cultural activists, supporting and disseminating radically marginalised voices in literature.

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)
