Arts Council Recovery Fund for September

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded an Arts Council Recovery Fund grant today. September Publishing founder and publisher Hannah MacDonald says:

‘At September we have worked hard to create a resilient, low-overhead, remotely-based publisher that invests in its authors, collaborates successfully with other arts and heritage organisations and seeks out diverse talent to develop.
