Skein Press was established in June 2017 to foster and publish writers whose work is fresh and thought-provoking and features outlooks and experiences not often represented in Irish publishing.

Our first project is to foster and publish writers from a Black and minority ethnic (BME) background. Currently, there is a gap in Irish publishing from BME authors. Cultural diversity has always been part of Irish heritage and has grown rapidly in the last 20 years.  The Irish publishing landscape can only be enriched by making this writing available.
