Who we are, what we do...

Earlyworks Press produces anthologies of poetry and fiction by writers who have been successful in our competitions, as well as work by members of our club and their associates. The competitions are open to all, and attract work of a high standard from across the English-speaking world.

The club was founded after a series of discussions in Hastings about what writers and others in independent publishing need. It is a facility for a select group of published authors, illustrators, and others with an interest in high quality publication. The club’s private forum gives members a secure place to develop and discuss work, share information about writing, publishing and marketing, and socialise among like-minded people. Members attend book fairs and organise launches and other events in the UK and abroad, and enjoy occasional informal meetings.

Club membership is open to people who are serious about developing their skills in their chosen aspects of writing and publishing. Admission is via recommendation from existing members, invitations offered to participating authors at events, and is also offered to authors short-listed in Earlyworks Press competitions. Membership costs £15 per year, or £5 for the first year for competition short-listed authors. Membership offers access to the forum; a showcase for members' work on the website, at events and other marketing activities; an opportunity to contribute to all aspects of Earlyworks Press books, and discounts on Earlyworks Press publications.

Earlyworks Press does not read unsolicited manuscripts. The press does produce some titles other than the competition anthologies. These are usually books about Hastings, the original home of Earlyworks Press, or collaborative projects by club members. Some club members also offer freelance editing or assisted publishing services.
