About Us

Welcome to UCLan Publishing and a very different approach to publishing books! We are a trade, independent publisher based in Preston, Lancashire. We have big ambitions and a big heart. Continually striving to produce the best children’s books in every genre from Early Years to YA. We’re 100% dedicated to putting Northern Publishing on the map, and our events team work closely with Lancashire Libraries, local schools and other Publishers to create truly unique events. The Northern YA Literary Festival being one of them!

Our staff our highly experienced and professional book publishers with many years in the trade behind them, many at the highest level including Waterstones Head Office, Penguin Random House, Bloomsbury and Macmillan. Therefore, our books are superb quality and our noses are commercial.

What we do

We work with debut and bestselling authors to bring books to life. However, we also work with communities across the world giving them a voice, and address niche’s in the book market.

The publishing house works with communities, authors and contributors from around the globe to produce books for the open market. Project teams have collaborated with the Maasai in Kenya, the Inuit community in Greenland and the Sami people in the Arctic.

Whatever we do, we strive to produce beautiful books that people will love.

Oh, and we also train the next generation of talented publishers through our BA and MA Publishing programmes. The students on these courses have the unique experience of helping to run the publishing house at all levels. Told you we were different!

We are always happy to hear from people so please do drop us a line.
