The Indigo Press


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 will publish its launch titles in summer/autumn 2018. 

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.



The Indigo Press is an independent publisher of fiction and creative non-fiction, headquartered at the legendary John Murray building in London. The press is named after the ancient dye, used all over the world. Having once been a luxury product subject to tariffs and harvested by slaves, Indigo is now one of the most democratic colours in the world as the main ingredient of denim, or ‘serge de nîmes’.

This decolonization – of the mind, body or country – is a key element of The Indigo Press’s philosophy, and indeed all the authors we are publishing in 2018 and 2019 are from countries which the UK has colonized or occupied: Australia, Eritrea, Nigeria, Northern Ireland, Sudan, Syria/Canada and the USA. This spirit of internationalism, feminism and socialism is our founding principle.
