EC Press is a small independent publisher with a strong focus on narratives that examine the world from a child’s perspective, from stories about wellbeing, daily life and community friendship to accounts of resilience. We seek to provide platforms for new conversations about contemporary life, publishing various genres, both scholarly and creative and putting the individual at the center of the narrative.

Stories and ideas about the many aspects of life, the unheard voices, the marginalised lives, the unspoken emotions and the hidden experiences are shared in safe spaces. EC Press sees its bodies of work as ways of creating meaning, starting conversations, making connections and giving importance to the things that touch our lives in order that equality, tolerance, support and respect may come from understanding the world from the perspective of others.

EC Press is proud of its independent and global vision. Actively seeking to work with New creators and emerging talent EC Press is passionate about printing new voices in all aspects of its publications and as a means of constantly looking for development and progress of its primary focus.
