Come in From the Cold: What We Do & Why We're So Good At It


Inpress are always on the lookout for new, innovative publishers to join our list. Whether you're having problems with your current sales agency (recently shut down?), starting out in publishing or just want to try something new, we'd love to hear from you.

For over ten years, Inpress has been instrumental in supporting the sales and marketing of literary book and magazine publishers across the UK and Ireland. We understand that our strength comes from the quality, breadth and diversity of our publishers’ lists and we are committed to helping our publishers grow and develop their business and authors.

We offer all the sales and marketing to the trade you would expect from a sales agency, plus a commitment to business development which you won’t find elsewhere, and an expectation of collegiate support among our publishers.  It’s a really nice place to belong. 

Our subsidy from Arts Council England and not-for-profit status means we can take risks with bold and innovative publishing from outside of the mainstream. We offer a full, professional and high-value service, focusing on generating sales and growing audiences. Any profit made is simply re-invested into promoting your titles.



Inpress is both a trade agency and an online bookseller, we support and nurture new and upcoming writing and publishing talent.

Based in Newcastle upon Tyne, Inpress represents over 40 of the UK and Ireland’s finest independent publishers. We sell poetry, fiction and non-fiction to the UK and international book trade through our specialist sales team.

Our head office staff has combined experience of both commercial and independent publishing, book retail sales, marketing and financial expertise. We have a designated Key Account manager, with a field sales team of highly experienced and professional freelance sales representatives.

Inpress sells over 200 new titles each calendar year in genres including poetry, fiction, short stories, cultural non-fiction, literary biography & children’s fiction.
