Saraband is an award-winning independent publisher of outstanding fiction, absorbing nature writing, pressing environmental issues and compelling memoir. Our fiction includes literary, historical and contemporary stories reflecting UK and international perspectives – some with a sense of humour, some gritty or dark, others thought-provoking – all engaging and vital. We publish non-fiction authors with deep knowledge of the culture, local landscapes, wildlife, folk traditions and history in regions around the UK, or with an unforgettable story to tell.
From our inception, we have provided a platform for underrepresented and marginalised voices that are often overlooked. We’ve championed diversity and inclusion as part of our wide-ranging commitment to excellence – and to our readers of all ages, backgrounds and personal identities, wherever they may live.
We publish across all print and digital formats, with ancillary content in our podcast, video and social channels. Our working style is collaborative, and we place a high value on relationships with authors and partnerships with colleagues in the indie publishing and bookselling sectors, libraries, literature organisations, and wherever good writing lives.
We are based in Salford, Manchester and are part of the Northern Fiction Alliance and members of Publishing Scotland, the Independent Publishers Guild and the Publishers Association.
