An independent publisher in London. We publish ballsy memoirs and racy anthologies. Our goal is to support exceptional writers so readers can find bold life stories (and that other stuff they call fiction) in the marketplace. 

Tattoo Anthology - call for submissions

Tattoo Anthology Guts Publishing Open call for submissions.jpg

We're delighted to announce an open call for submissions for our upcoming tattoo anthology.


Closing date is 1 February 2023.

We are seeking fiction, nonfiction and poetry on the theme of TATTOOS.


It could be about one tattoo, or many tattoos, or any angle you'd like to take. Any genre is fine although we love real stories so memoir is very welcome but send whatever you like.

The Peanut Factory Guts Publishing.jpg

The Peanut Factory by Deborah Price

Release date: May 2022

"A beautifully grungy coming-of-age memoir set in the squats of 1970s London. Deborah Price is a gifted storyteller who will remind readers how it feels to be young, broke, uncomfortable and marginalised, but gloriously hopeful and madly in love with life. A must-read for anyone who was there, or wishes they had been." — Nikki Sheehan, author of Goodnight, Boy

“A window into a time of raw energy and rough edges, Deb Price paints a vivid picture of life in the squats of South London. By turns amusing and alarming, but always engaging, we accompany a teenager as she navigates her way to womanhood in a sub-culture on the margins.” — Allie Rogers, author of Little Gold and Tale of a Tooth
