Republic of Consciousness



The Republic of Consciousness supports, promotes and celebrates small presses in the UK and Ireland. We have awarded nearly £35,000 through our prize in the first three years to publishers and authors. We are now open for submissions to our 2020 prize; take a look here.

We run a monthly book subscription to raise funds for the prize, with books generously donated by a different small press every month. Sign up on our Patreon here, and see more here.

We also run a monthly podcast dedicated to the small press, which can be followed here.


Republic of Consciousness Book of the Month

Sign up to our monthly book club on Patreon. It’s one newly-published small press book every month, and all the money goes into the pot for the prize, which in turn is distributed among our shortlist and winner.

Regular income for us means we can guarantee the prize every year, and the podcast every month.
