Blue Door Press is a writer-led co-publishing venture: a growing community of writers, editors, copy-editors and designers. It was established by writers Jane Kirwan and Pamela Johnson; both have won awards and prizes for fiction & poetry; both have been published through traditional routes but now wish to have a more personal involvement in producing and marketing their own work as well as other books that should be out in the world and available for readers.
What is Co-publishing?
Thanks to new technologies, producing and distributing books is becoming more democratic. At Blue Door Press, writers will work with our associates to navigate these new technologies and produce high-quality books, including fiction guaranteed to start discussion in your reading group.
As we develop the list, reader feedback will be important. Do stay in touch via our Contact page. This is just the beginning of what we plan as a vibrant community of writers and readers.
For the time being submissions are closed so please don’t send us anything. Why? Following recent events and publicity we’ve been rather overwhelmed by submissions! It’s wonderful to know that there are so many writers out there who believe in Blue Door Press, but we need time to process and respond to each approach. We’ll post here when we’re open again. Thank you for your interest.
