The Artel Press is a small, independent publisher founded in 2013 and based in Liverpool, UK.

We specialise in short-run poetry, artists’ editions and experimental writing, from unpublished authors of high quality and originality.

Artel refers to the Russian collective term for a group of artists.


Our editorial interest leans towards experimental writing from emerging artists and writers who explore existential themes outside of the usual contemporary narratives.

We do not commission chapbooks, pamphlets or novels.

The very nature of indie publishing invokes the spirit of collaboration and personal commitment. If you still feel a connection, then please get in touch if you want to pitch a creative project to us.

Our shop features all titles currently available in physical or ebook editions -please do take a look before you make contact, thank you.
