About the Press
Silent Voices Press was officially launched in 2018. After the success of Silent Voices Project, we decided to start producing our own beautiful print books and to open up the theme of silent voices to include all silent voices, not just those of the ordinary women of history, which is how we started. There are many silent voices in this world – and we want them to be heard – so please check our submission pages for more information.
Please join us on our journey to bring the past back to life, or wonder at the silence of today.
