A Trailblazer

We are the 2024 winner of Small Press of the Year (British Book Awards, North of England), previously a four-time finalist! Our publications have not only received laurels from esteemed poetry competitions like The Laurel Prize and The Julie Suk Award, but also earned accolades in short stories and fiction through the Saboteur Awards and the Edge Hill Prize.

Since our inception in February 2018, Fly on the Wall Press seamlessly integrates social activism into our literary endeavours. Our flagship anthologies transcend literature, functioning as catalysts for change. With each sale, we not only raise funds for chosen charities but also fuel an ongoing dialogue on highlighted issues. Embracing the audacious, we tackle sensitive topics, dedicating a substantial portion of our annual schedule to benevolent projects. Our collaborative efforts span a breadth of charitable organizations, including Mind, Shelter, Crisis Aid UK, WWF, The Climate Coalition, Street Child United, and Invest in ME.
