Britain's leading freelance literary publishers
Soalt is one of the leading UK based independently owned publishers dedicated to the exploration and publishing of modern UK music. Likewise, we believe that a book cannot be successful without being explored, so we put a lot of effort into attracting the audience through our immediate commitment, through the excellence of our editorial, styling and production, and through our creativity in selling, communicating and advertising.
Publish well is participatory and integrative, but depends on your judgment and of course on you, the readers. The company was established in 1999. The first releases were poems and we quickly created an award-winning global listing.

Soon, Salt's publisher extended to child poetics, Indian poetics, translations of latino poems, poetic critique, essay, literary accompanists, biographies, theater science, author leaders and poetic books, and a groundbreaking eBook novella.
