Myriad Editions is an independent publisher based in Brighton. Since 2005 we have developed a distinctive style of publishing original fiction, graphic novels and feminist nonfiction.
Our original mission was to seek out home-grown talent and publish debut authors from Brighton and beyond. In 15 years, we have launched the careers of more than 70 authors whose books have been well-reviewed and received. Our books have won the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award (twice) and have been shortlisted for other prestigious awards, including the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger, Polari First Book Awards, British Book Design and Production Award, Wales Book of the Year Award, Prix des Lecteurs and the Premio Letterario.
We organise two work-in-progress competitions, one for fiction (First Drafts) and the other for graphic novels (First Graphic Novel Competition). Both have a track record of uncovering and launching authors who progress to achieve creative and commercial success.
In 2017 Myriad merged with New Internationalist as part of a joint plan to reach wider audiences and publish books that push boundaries and embrace diversity. We have cemented reputations as well as created them, building on our core mission to publish excellent and original books, establish a literary niche against the mainstream, and to develop and support authors’ careers at home and abroad.
We strive to make the personal political and the local international. Our books speak to and of global and urgent shared concerns. We publish extraordinary storytellers and their remarkable work—fiction or nonfiction, mapped, drawn or written, these are books for our times.
