Mudfog Press works to promote new writers and writing from the Tees Valley and surrounding area. The Press is run by a voluntary editorial board and is non-profit-making. We currently have financial support from Middlesbrough Council and Arts Council England.
We mostly publish poetry and short fiction, but will consider submissions in other genres. We put particular emphasis on the production of short pamphlets, which give writers a first opportunity of individual publication. In selecting work for publication, we aim to include a wide variety of voices and styles.
We require work to be of a quality that readers in the Tees Valley and elsewhere will enjoy reading and will want to purchase. We offer strong editorial support for our authors, however inexperienced or experienced, who submit work which we decide to publish and promote.
Mudfog Press was established in 1993 and has to date published over 40 pamphlets and six full length books. Several Mudfog authors have gone on to be published more widely and to establish their reputations regionally and nationally.
Current Mudfog publications are available for purchase in several local bookshops, libraries and cultural centres. They can also be safely ordered on-line in the Mudfog Shop through the PayPal system
Our Editorial team now includes Jo Heather, Pauline Plummer, Geoff Strange, David Lynch & Liz Geraghty.
