GALLEY BEGGAR PRESS is an independent publisher committed to publishing daring, innovative fiction and narrative non-fiction.

Founded in 2012, over the past six years our authors – from Preti Taneja (We that are young) to Eimear McBride (A Girl Is A Half-formed Thing) and beyond – have gone on to be longlisted, shortlisted, and the winners of over twenty of the world’s most prestigious literary awards, including the Women’s Prize for Fiction, The Wellcome Book Prize, The Goldsmiths Prize, The Desmond Elliott Prize, The Jan Michalski Prize, The Folio Prize, The Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize, and the Frank O’Connor Short Story Prize.

GALLEY BEGGAR PRESS has been called a “small-but-mighty institution” (The Desmond Elliott Prize), a “tiny publisher… with a cartload of guts” (The Guardian), and “revolutionary” (The Telegraph).

Why Patreon?

We are committed and passionate publishers, and determined to continue supporting the some of the very best - and most courageous - of the world's writers. We want to offer them a platform (a home) for many years to come.

But small presses, and small press writers, can't exist without readers: Without you, we are nothing. 

Our aim over the next year is to grow our subscriber base to 300 (we currently have 136 subscribers, our much-loved 'Galley Buddies'), and we're using Patreon as a platform that allows subscribers to contribute smaller monthly amounts (as opposed to the one larger yearly payment, as offered on our website). 

With 300 subscribers - and in a dangerous publishing climate of deep discounting, runaway returns, and rocketing print costs - we'll have a safer, steadier foundation, a secure base to support our writers and make sure they thrive, way into the future.

Subscribers of every tier will also receive updates, invitations to author events and parties throughout the year, and the opportunity to read our books prior to publication. 

Thank you!
