Following the news of our first publication, ‘The 42b’, we’re happy to announce we’ll be holding the launch party at the fabulous PORTER’S! It’s one of our favourite night time haunts in the city, and we’re over the moon to be launching our FIRST BOOK there!

PARTY DETAILS:
19.30 – 21.30, Thursday 5 November, Porter’s, Cardiff –  part of the Swn Festival fringe.
Entry is FREE but please register on Eventbrite so we have an idea of numbers (the first 50 people will get a free drink, so make sure you’re prompt!).

There will be readings from the book, some live music, and hula hoop performances!

A special treat – see the online chapter!

The wonderful James O’Brien and Matt Harris have been beavering away putting together this AWESOME online chapter to give you a sneak preview of the book.

We don’t want to go on about this too much, but it’s one of the greatest things we’ve ever seen and we hope you like it too!

Pre-order the book – one day left!

We Are Cardiff Press has been crowdfunding this first book, and we’ve actually hit our target of £2,000! This means that although there are no more spaces for your name to be printed in the book, you can still pre-order it through Indiegogo until midnight on Thursday 22nd.  

After that, you’ll be able to buy the book on our website (a new site will be going live at wearecardiffpress.co.uk soon), at the launch party and from us in person at our container office open house days, on the first Saturday of each month.

Why on earth would you set up a publishing company?

Director Hana explains why she set up We Are Cardiff Press:

“There’s an opportunity for small presses to take risks on alternative, challenging literature that the larger publishers don’t consider marketable … By publishing the very best work we discover in printed form, the slow-burn of old fashioned books spreads slower, but lasts longer.”

Hope to see you at the launch party!
