Blue Door Press is an imprint for literary fiction, memoir, non-fiction and poetry: a book-loving community that we invite you to be part of. As an alternative to mainstream publishing, we can take control of producing and marketing books we believe in. Blue Door Press was officially launched on 14 September 2016. We celebrated with a party at the Seven Dials Club, Covent Garden, in London. You can read about that celebration and meet the founding authors in our News section, here. You can read articles and reviews, here.
Blue Door Press is delighted to announce the forthcoming arrival of the 9th story in our anthology, ALTOGETHER ELSEWHERE to be published on Thursday 30 September. ‘Out of the Woods,’ is a piece by Charlie Allenby who grew up believing that Epping Forest was a place full of ghosts and criminals. It took a global pandemic for him to give Epping another chance. Join him on his morning bike ride as he recalls earlier memories of this ancient woodland
The ALTOGETHER ELSEWHERE online project was launched in January 2021 with Learning to Breathe with Trees a compelling personal essay by highly-acclaimed author, Sarah Salway. In March 2020 she was hospitalised with Covid-19 and writes about her experience of finding a place close to home that has become an integral part of her recovery.
Each month we’ll add a new piece to the anthology – work that will take you somewhere different, evoke a sense of the ‘elsewhere’, designed to help you perceive things from new and creative perspectives.
If you missed the launch, you can see the whole event on this video … hear readings by Sarah Salway, Mary Woodward and Steve NiiKwashi Roberts – we published their pieces in January, February and March.
