Inpress Books to Hold Annual Festival of Publishing in January 2024

By Georgia Appleyard and Amy Joan Sayner

Inpress Books is delighted to be running its annual Festival of Publishing at Conway Hall in London later this month. On the 24 January 2024, the Newcastle-based sales and marketing agency will be joined by publishers and other book trade professionals from across the UK for an exciting day packed with panel conversations, presentations and plenty of opportunities for networking.

Inpress is the UK's specialist in selling books produced by independent publishers. Since 2002, they have worked to support innovative, literary publishers across the UK and Ireland, helping their fiction, poetry, and non-fiction reach book lovers worldwide. Inpress brings painstakingly created, innovative, and outside-of-the-mainstream books together in one place so that readers can browse, buy, and love them, wherever they live.

This year's festival will cover key topics such as sustainability, inclusivity, collaborative partnerships, TikTok, and working with influencers. It will feature representatives from several Inpress publishers, including Sonya McGilchrist (Publisher at Dinosaur Books), Kristel Buckley (Publicity & Media Associate at Lantana Publishing), Cherry Potts (Director of Arachne Press), and Stefan Tobler (Founder of And Other Stories), alongside figures from the wider industry, including Illumincrate founder Daphne Tonge, BookSource MD Davinder Bedi, The Poetry Pharmacy founder Deborah Alma, and many more.

Sophie O'Neill, Managing Director of Inpress Books, says, “It's a highlight of our year to gather in person to celebrate the achievements of small presses and, of course, discuss the challenges facing the book trade.”
