404 Ink is an alternative book and literary magazine publisher based in Edinburgh. Established in mid 2016 we sought to provide an alternative literary magazine for the Scottish reader market and beyond by publishing unusual fiction, non-fiction, poetry and comics in English, Scots and Scottish Gaelic.
Thanks to Creative Scotland funding for our first issue, we were able to bring Issue One: Error, to a wide audience and sold out the first print run within months of publication.
Our first book publication, Nasty Women, featuring essays from Chitra Ramaswamy, Nadine Aisha Jassat and Kaite Welsh met international acclaim and attention through the highly successful Kickstarter campaign in January 2017 which saw the support of Margaret Atwood, Louise O’Neill, Nikesh Shukla and numerous other influential figures across the industry. Raising over £22,000 to publish Nasty Women we were able to take this important anthology on what it is to be a woman in the 21st century to an international market garnering publicity in The Guardian, The Independent, The Huffington Post, Refinery 29, The Skinny, Book Riot and much more.
We aim to broaden our eclectic list by publishing contemporary works from new and established writers both locally and internationally. In publishing voices belonging to authors we admire and wish to champion, we seek to bring a fresh approach to publishing within Scotland and the UK.
