Herself Press

Herself Press aims to revive the work of women writers from the North of Ireland by reissuing, or publishing for the first time, their work. Its focus is on prose -- novels, short stories, essays, journalism, memoir -- by women writers whose work has fallen under the radar.

Herself Press is a twinkle in the eye of Averill Buchanan, a freelance fiction editor with a PhD in English Literature and a background in graphic design. She is author of Mary Blachford Tighe: The Irish Psyche (Cambridge Scholars Press, 2011).
