The book review and news site The Fiction Desk is to venture into publishing with a fiction imprint. Also titled The Fiction Desk, the imprint’s first endeavour will be the publication of quarterly anthologies of short fiction from both published and unpublished authors, with submissions now open on the website. The first title Various Authors will be published in April 2011.
According to the Bookseller, the titles will be published as trade paperbacks. The imprint is aiming for a 3,000 print run for each title, with a “continuous Granta-style” printing schedule. The imprint is aiming for direct sales, plus a focus on independents. Visit The Fiction Desk for further news of this project.
