Trent Editions aims to recover and publish landmark texts in handsome and affordable modern editions

…the excellent in-house imprint of Nottingham Trent University.

Boyd Tonkin, The Independent


The publishing arm of Nottingham Trent University, Trent Editions was founded in 1998. For the past 20 years we have sought to enrich the literary landscape by making innovative, radical and culturally significant works accessible to new audiences in handsome print editions.

We recover texts from neglected writers, including the first novel by an African-American woman, Harriett Wilson’s Our Nig. We have worked with poetry and prose works by working-class writers like John Clare, Ethel Carnie Holdsworth. In addition, postcolonial texts by authors such as Alex La Guma and Cornelia Sorabji - all presented with critical introductions by leading scholars in the field.

Our specialist interests include, but are in no way restricted to:

  • Radical fiction and poetry
  • World literature and postcolonial writing
  • American fiction
  • Women's fiction and non-fiction
  • Modernism and interwar writing
  • Local and regional writing
  • Texts that are significant to the history and development of working-class, radical and popular print culture
  • Other important printed texts that have existed on the cultural margins

We accept book proposals all year round. If you would like to submit a proposal please fill out this form and email your completed proposal to
