Hello and welcome!

époque press is an independent publisher based in Brighton, with connections to Dublin and New York, established to promote and represent the very best in new literary talent. Through a combination of our main publishing imprint and our online é-zine we aim to bring inspirational and thought provoking work to a wider audience.

Our main imprint is seeking out new voices, authors who are producing high-quality literary fiction and who are looking for a publisher to help them realise their ambitions. Our commitment is to fully consider all submissions on literary merit alone.

Our é-zine showcases a combination of the written word, and other art forms, bringing together artists working in different mediums to encourage and inspire new perspectives on specific themes.

For details of how to submit your work to us for consideration please follow the submissions guidelines and for all other enquiries please email

> our é-thos: époque press  was founded in October 2017 with the aim of publishing great literary titles by authors from diverse backgrounds who may have been overlooked by the large global publishing houses. As part of this we also set up an online arts magazine, our é-zine, with the aim of connecting artists working in different mediums, in the hope it would stir the wider pot of creativity.

Like all good ideas, époque press was birthed in a local Brighton Coffee Shop/Pub, with the initial thought process quickly scribbled down on a till receipt.

The press is run by two life-long friends, Sean Campbell (MD and Editor in Chief) and Adam Bentley (Art & Print Director), both of whom have a lifelong passion for the arts and literature. We also have a great team behind us who help with submission reviews and the editorial process, as well as always being on hand to help serve wine at our book launches.

Everything we do, apart from physically printing the books, we do ourselves. This involves our own website design, cover design and typesetting, and we focus on delivering the highest quality in everything we do, and we hope you can see the results of this through our titles and our é-zine.

We pride ourselves on working closely with our authors, we involve them in every stage of bringing a book to publication and we pay royalties that are fair and representative of the work involved in writing and publishing a book.

All of our publishing decisions are based solely on the quality of the work and we are not motivated by commercial considerations, although of course we want our press, and our authors, to financially succeed. 

If you feel so inclined, you can help us continue with our é-thos by buying us a coffee, we certainly like to keep our caffeine levels up so we can keep on top of working with all of our great authors.

Thanks for reading...
