About New Island

THE STORY OF NEW ISLAND

New Island is Ireland’s premier independent publisher of literary fiction and Irish-interest non-fiction.

New Island Books has over twenty-five years experience bringing the best of Irish writers to the Irish public, and through our partnerships with publishers in other parts of the world, we bring Irish writing to a wide international audience.

As a small independent press, New Island gives a personal development service to our authors and is particularly valued for taking risks on new writers or established writers trying to break their own mould.

So browse our books to find your story or learn more about our incredible stable of authors. If you’d like to be published by us, read our submissions guidelines and don’t forget to meet our team to find out who does what.
