About Gritstone Publishing Coop

Britain has a new publishing company, Gritstone Publishing, the first to be established as an author-run co-operative.

Gritstone specialises in publishing non-fiction and fiction titles relating to the landscape and the countryside. Its four founder members are all experienced outdoor writers and journalists who have decided that, by establishing Gritstone as a fully mutual co-operative, they will be able to exercise more control over the way that their work is published.

Our next title to be published is Colin and Fleur Speakman’s Yorkshire Wolds book. Which will be launched in early May in Beverley, East Riding. Signed copies will be available direct from Gritstone Publishing price £15 (post free) on a special pre-launch offer from early April. Order on line (click on the cover image below for more details) or by post TODAY.
