history

our literary provenance
​​Scotland Street Press was founded in Scotland Street, Edinburgh in 2014. Scotland Street has long been a hub of literary activity and it was both fitting and fortuitous that Jean settled in Scotland Street on her return to Edinburgh to found the company. She wanted to publish work that was exciting, challenging and grounded in a sense of place. Scotland Street in the Edinburgh New Town has a rich literary history. The street was the home of Compton Mackenzie, was the setting for Alexander McCall Smith's novels, and today houses an abundance of living writers. This quintessentially cobbled Edinburgh New Town Street felt like a perfect haven for a publisher with a love of Scotland and for print, and Scotland Street Press was created.
We are committed to growing our publishing house which promotes Scotland as a distinctive creative voice in the world. Historically Scotland has always had an international outlook. At Scotland Street Press we publish interesting, varied, challenging voices who have good stories to tell, and in doing so bring Scotland into an international conversation. Our independence and small size give us the freedom to champion stories we believe need to be told and voices that need to be heard. We celebrate individuality, prioritise women’s writing and continually seek to include more diverse authors. In 2020 Alindarka’s Children, translated from Belarusian and Russian into Scots and English, was longlisted for the prestigious Republic of Consciousness prize.
We create books that not only read well but look beautiful, combining the visual design, binding, and cover with the literary merit of the contents. Our team of designers and printers work closely with the editorial team to ensure that the themes of the book are translated into a tangible aesthetic. We hope our books liven your minds and hearts and inspire you to great things. As a small tight-knit team, we work hard on few resources. We thank creative Scotland and publishing Scotland for their continued support.
