Fledgling Press Ltd

Fledgling Press was founded in 1993 by Zander Wedderburn to make talented new authors available to readers quickly and effectively in a variety of formats. In September 2010 the company was restructured with a view to expanding the business and encouraging new talent in both the writing world and associated fields. We produce both printed books and ebooks, distributed through Faber Factory.

Fledgling Press is an independent publisher based in Edinburgh, publishing historical fiction, life stories, crime fiction, literary fiction and young adult fiction, including award-winning authors Helen Grant, Philip Caveney and Alex Nye. We are committed to publishing work by debut authors, emerging talent and new voices in the literary world.

We like to publish new Scottish writing talent, but this does not preclude writers of other nationalities submitting work - we read all submissions.

Submission guidelines: Email submission of a synopsis and first three chapters to is required plus a short author biography. Paper submissions are no longer accepted.
