Longstone Books was set up in 2006 by a group of people who work in publishing, film-making, communication, education, and international development. We share an enthusiasm for the power of good writing.
We believe there is a wealth of high quality writing which does not fit the narrow commercial criteria of the large-scale publishing industry. We aim to provide a home for new voices and writers with a fresh perspective.
Our author list celebrates diversity. Between them the authors draw on life experiences in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean as well as their base in the UK. Their professional expertise ranges from translating Urdu literature to running a steel band with primary school children. Some have a string of publications to their names; others are first-time authors who have overcome the hurdles of writing in a second language.
In addition to publishing new work, Longstone is reissuing earlier work by some of its authors, ensuring that a range of their liveliest writing remains available.
