Founded in 2011 as a small independent publisher, Queen’s Ferry Press specializes in literary fiction. Inspired by a Scottish coastal estuary through which crossings have occurred for over a thousand years, the press seeks to publish works that convey via structuring and interpretation. At Queen’s Ferry Press, physical crafting and emotional connection are celebrated.
The press currently releases 10–15 titles a year, many from debut authors, and is the publisher of Shadows of Men, the 2013 recipient of the TIL Steven Turner Award for Best Work of First Fiction. On the Edges of Vision, by Helen McClory, was recently shortlisted for the Saltire Scottish First Book of the Year Award.
Queen’s Ferry Press is proud to extend its mission of providing a venue for fine writing by branching into the literary novel genre. The press also recently announced the debut of The Best Small Fictions, an annual print anthology to compile the best international short fiction in a calendar year.
