Runner up for Best Anthology - Saboteur Awards 2018

Longlisted for Most Innovative Publisher

Saboteur Awards 2019

Fly on the Wall is a social enterprise company and a not for profit publisher, based in Manchester. We publish high quality anthologies on pressing issues, chapbooks and poetry products, from exceptional poets around the globe, with socially conscious themes.

We are proud to publish short stories and poetry on the pressing issues of our time, being unafraid to generate conversation about perhaps 'prickly' subjects, whilst also dedicating a large proportion of our yearly publishing schedule to charitable projects. We hope our anthologies in particular work in two ways: to get people communicating and to raise funds for the charities working to tackle the very issues we highlight.

Which charities have we worked with so far?



Crisis Aid UK


The Climate Coalition

Street Child United

What does Fly on the Wall Press believe in?

Words have the power to change opinion. Expressing injustice through poetry is an important statement which cannot be undervalued. 

Why should you read and submit to Fly on the Wall Press?
