'A person's spirit is in their cloth'

The Indigo Press is an independent publisher of fiction and creative non-fiction, bringing together a conversation-starting curation of books that offer bold ideas and beautifully-crafted stories. We are open to writing from around the world and literature that explores radical thinking and literary innovation in both form and approach. 

The Indigo Press is the latest addition to a portfolio of book businesses that comprise the MILD Group, which includes long-established rights specialists The Marsh Agency, award-winning independent bookshop Dulwich Books, and LiveLit, a successful literary events series, that includes two annual literary festivals.
