  • Corporate body
  • 1990-2013

Flambard was a North East-based independent press which published a range of poetry and fiction, as well as some non-fiction and visual-art books. It was particularly focused on publishing new and neglected writers in the North of England, as well as promoting live literature.

Flambard Press was established in 1990 by Peter and Margaret Lewis. They began using early word processors and desktop publishing at Newcastle University, before securing funding from Northern Arts. In 2000, they were named a Regularly Funded Organisation of the Arts Council to cater for neglected writers of both poetry and prose, particularly of, but not exclusively from the northern region.

Over 20 years they published 129 titles, including several which were shortlisted for major prizes such as the Booker Prize, the T.S. Eliot Prize, and the Whitbread First Novel Award. Flambard Press supported many writers from the North East and Cumbria, as well as publishing authors from across the UK and overseas.

Flambard Press was supported by the Arts Council England until 2012, and officially closed in March 2013.
