Our Story


Constellations Press was launched in Buckinghamshire in 2023 to discover and publish exceptional books. Our interests cover fiction, memoir and essays. Surely the reason we read is the same reason we fall in love: to move from the self into something more vividly imagined, more capacious than life previously offered. At Constellations Press we prize writing that is willing to take risks, is fresh and exciting, and provides us with original ways of looking at the world. We are committed to bringing new and emerging authors to contemporary audiences with books that are beautifully imagined and elegantly produced.
