We are Black Spring Press Group

In 2024, we're celebrating 40 years of literary excellence as a boutique indie publishing outfit!

The Black Spring Press list has published literary classics and major figures, including Leonard Cohen, Orson Welles, Anaïs Nin, Momus, Carolyn Cassady, Charles Baudelaire, Nick Cave, and many more. We are a micro-press based in Maida Vale, North London, and we have a commitment to the wider world of prose and poetry, in English and translation. We hold regular literary prizes, search for emerging talent, and neglected out-of-work authors, as well as well-established figures. Our books have been recommended by such major figures as Stephen Fry, Lee Child, Gina Miller, Salman Rushdie, Victoria Beckham, Tom Stoppard, Colm Toibin, and The Rev. Jesse Jackson. For almost forty years, we have believed that great writing deserves a great press, fearless, and free.
