Seren is a dynamic independent publisher of award-winning poetry, fiction, translation, biography, art history, history and current affairs titles. For the last thirty years Seren has aimed to publish the best quality and most thought-provoking writing on offer, in well designed, well produced books.
At the heart of the Seren list is a good story told well, or an idea or history presented interestingly and provocatively. Many of Seren’s books and authors are shortlisted for – and win! – major literary prizes across Britain and America, including the Costa, Forward, T.S. Eliot, Glen Dimplex and Ondaatje Prizes.
Seren also publishes Poetry Wales magazine and maintains strong links with writing from Wales, as showcased in the popular New Stories from the Mabinogion series. Prominent Seren authors include Dannie Abse, Sheenagh Pugh, Owen Sheers, Gwyneth Lewis, Niall Griffiths, Pascale Petit and Kathryn Simmonds. And although its roots remain firmly in Wales – ‘seren’ means ‘star’ in Welsh – both its authorship and readership are international in scope, proving that writers from a small country with an intricate culture have a truly worldwide relevance.
