Knight Errant is a micro press established in 2017, publishing unapologetically queer and intersectional stories. We prioritise marginalised voices and inclusivity.
We saw a definite lack of distinctly queer publishing and decided to step up. We want to empower writers to write more openly and more queerly and to not shy away from drawing on and portraying experiences that are important to them simply because the majority of the publishing is failing to represent them in their full glory.
We may be micro but we are mighty! Knight Errant runs on the efforts and support of part-time staff and freelancers. We aim to publish at least two books per calendar year. More is not always better and we prefer to put everything we've got into the few books we make to make them the best they can be.
We regularly use crowdfunders to fund our various projects. All profits, however scant they may be, go back into the press and towards paying our authors, artists and staff.
We publish a variety of work – fiction, poetry, flash fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels and comics – and are particularly keen on short form and on work that is intersectional and challenges literary genres and societal norms.
Our ultimate aim is to bring to the world more stories written by, from and about LGBTQIA+ , BAME/POC, working class folk, people with disabilities as well as migrants and the displaced. As well as being the bridge for these narratives from cultures and languages outwith the Anglophone sphere of influence by supporting translators and publishing works and authors in translation.
