My name is Julianne Ingles and I am a publisher, editor and artist. I love real stories and people who write them, and read them. I started Guts in 2019 after finishing an MA course in Modern Literature at Goldsmiths. It was an experiment of sorts, which has gone fairly well. 

We’ve had lots of success with our books including features in The Guardian, BBC Culture, The Scotsman, The Edinburgh Evening News, Stylist, BBC One, BBC Big Scottish Book Club, and more. Our debut memoir, Euphoric Recall, was even acknowledged by Scottish Parliament.

In October 2021, I was endorsed by Arts Council England for a Global Talent visa for the work I've been doing at Guts Publishing and for being an exceptional talent and potential leader in the publishing sector. It’s really an honour as it allows me to live and work in the UK and continue publishing ballsy books about life. Thank you, Arts Council England.

In March 2023, Guts were nominated for the National Diversity Awards which was another honour. You can read all of the wonderful comments that our readers wrote here:
