Seren is Wales’ leading independent literary publisher, specialising in English-language writing from Wales. Our list is broad, spanning poetry, fiction, biography, memoir, travel, nature writing, social history, criticism, translation, art and photography. Many of our authors have been shortlisted for – or won – major literary prizes, including the Costa Award, Forward Prize, Jerwood Fiction Uncovered, Writers Guild Award, TS Eliot Prize and many others.
Our aim is not simply to reflect what is going on in the culture in which we publish, but to drive that culture forward, to engage with the world, and to bring Welsh literature, art and politics before a wider audience.
At the heart of our list is a good story told well or an idea or history presented interestingly or provocatively. We’re international in authorship and readership, though our roots remain here in Wales, where we prove that writers from a small country with an intricate culture have a worldwide relevance.
