Based in Manchester, Started 2007
Comma Press is an independent publisher based in Manchester. We are an Arts Council England NPO. Comma’s mission is to put the short story at the heart of contemporary narrative culture. Through innovative commissions, collaborations and digital initiatives, we explore the power of the short story to transcend cultural and disciplinary boundaries, and to enable greater understanding across these boundaries.
We accept submissions from writers however we mainly work on Project Briefs or Showcase call-outs which we post on our website asking people to submit stories that work under the brief or terms of that specific call-out. We have extensive submission guidance on our website.
