The Republic of Consciousness supports, promotes and celebrates small presses in the UK and Ireland. We have awarded over £20,000 through our prize in the first two years to publishers and authors. This years shortlist was announced on March 2nd 2019: take a look here. The winner will be announced on March 28th.
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.
Shortlist Reading: London Review Bookshop. Wednesday 20 March. 7pm.
Our six-shortlisted authors will be reading at the London Review Bookshop in Bloomsbury on Wednesday 20 March.
The readings will be introduced by the prize’s founder, Neil Griffiths.
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.
