HammerOn Press is a grassroots publishing label based in Bristol, UK.

Founded in 2010, our books are collaborations between community organisations, artists, authors and designers.

We publish books we want to read and we hope you like them.

Our non-fiction titles combine critical theory and accessible writing.

Children’s and young adult literature, community heritage, gender, popular music, youth work, para-academia and the history of social movements are some of the topics our titles cover.

Got an idea for a HammerOn book? Get in touch and tell us about it.

We love experimental theory, all kinds of feminist histories (even the bad ones), work from independent scholars and precarious intellectuals, poetic thought, pedagogical resources for heritage and youth work, cultural histories and writing that translates ideas across different contexts.

We are also open to all kinds of suggestion.

Books are tools and that can change the world.

We want to work with authors who feel the same way as we do.
