Papaya Press is an award-winning publishing project based in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Founded in 2014 by writer Lauren Vevers, our aim is to build a community of northern artists and writers. Together we make zines, produce events, and run workshops.

In the past, we’ve worked with cultural organisations across the North including The Laing, Kelham Island Museum, The Late Shows, Ground Gallery, New Writing North, and Durham Book Festival.

Our last event, in collaboration with The Grapevine Zine, was co-hosted in London at the Peckham Pelican.

Get in touch to find out more about the events and projects we produce. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram @PapayaPress.
