About Tindal Street Press

Tindal Street Press is an independent publisher of regional literary fiction with a national reputation for excellence and a prize-listing record that is the envy of many established imprints. (Three Booker nominations since 2003 and many other prizes and listings.)

Originally based in Birmingham, Tindal Street Press aims to find writers of national and international significance from places other than London and the South East – where nearly all of the English publishing industry is based. It seeks to be recognized by readers, authors and its peers in publishing for developing outstanding literary talent and publishing first class contemporary, predominantly regional, literary fiction.

Tindal Street Press is a not-for-profit arts organization established in 1998, part-funded by Arts Council England and Birmingham City Council. The Publishing Director is responsible for all operations to a voluntary board of directors which oversees business strategy and planning, funding and finance; and to lead officers of Arts Council England and Birmingham City Arts Team for funding support. Sir Michael Lyons, Chairman of the BBC Trust, became Chair of the Tindal Street board of directors in March 2010.

In 2009 Tindal Street Press celebrated ten years of prize-winning publishing, since its first publication Hard Shoulder was published in 1999.

In 2012, Tindal Street Press was taken over by Profile Books Ltd.
Registered office 3a Exmouth House, London EC1R 0JH.
