Small But Mighty: 10 years of Galley Beggar Press

Saturday 28 May
National Centre for Writing, Dragon Hall
8pm until late
£8 (under 18/young NNF £7.50)

We’re celebrating! Join Sam Jordison and Eloise Millar, the co-founders of ‘revolutionary’ (Telegraph) independent publisher Galley Beggar Press, for a conversation marking ten years of publishing daring, innovative works of fiction and non-fiction. They will offer a glimpse behind the curtain at how small presses work with authors to bring books to readers, and how their Norwich-based business has taken the literary awards by storm. Stay with us after the event for a drink and mingle underneath the great beams of Dragon Hall.

About Galley Beggar Press

Galley Beggar Press is an independent publisher committed to publishing daring, innovative fiction and narrative non-fiction. Founded in 2012, they 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 ten years, Galley Beggar’s 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.

Galley Beggar Press has been called a ‘small-but-mighty institution’ (the Desmond Elliott Prize), a ‘tiny publisher… with a cartload of guts’ (Guardian), and ‘revolutionary’ (The Telegraph). Galley Beggar is run by its co-founders, Sam Jordison and Eloise Millar.

City of Literature is a Norfolk & Norwich Festival and National Centre for Writing presentation, programmed by the National Centre for Writing.
