Dead Ink were very pleased to announce that their crowdfunding project, Publishing the Underground, surpassed 100% of its goal yesterday, raising £3,048 with contributions from over 165 supporters.

The project launched in October with the aim of furthering Dead Ink's work with emerging British authors. Their second New Voices series, features Harry Gallon (The Shapes of Dog's Eyes), Lochlan Bloom (The Wave), and Wes Brown (When Lights Are Bright).
