Mayfly Press

Mayfly Press is the home of good books from the North of England


Mayfly Press LLP is our publishing house, a trading partnership with Business Education Publishers Ltd. Mayfly currently has two imprints: Moth Publishing, a crime imprint; and Mayfly Books, a literary and trade imprint. All profits New Writing North makes from Mayfly Press are reinvested into the business and into our charitable work.

Moth Publishing: Northern Crime

The publishing house was founded in 2012 and launched with the Northern Crime Competition; the first four winners of which – Helen Cadbury, Rebecca Muddiman, Alfie Crow and Michael Donovan – were published in 2013. The Northern Crime Competition ran again in 2014 and brought over 20 new writers to publication.

Mayfly: Northern literature

In 2015 we launched Mayfly Books, our literary and trade imprint. Our first publication was a reissue of Julia Darling’s coming-of-age novel, Crocodile Soup.
