SIGLUM IS A NEW IMPRINT which focuses on change-making and on the illuminative and transformative possibilities of the arts, music and culture.

Among other things, its titles will explore the practical links between aesthetics and personal, interpersonal and societal change.

We are also interested in biography, letters and papers related to  those involved in social and cultural transformation more widely.

Launched in 2019, Siglum presently features two collaborative titles. The first, Words Out Of Silence, is an acclaimed collection of poetry and prose by the Quaker writer Jill Segger.

The second, Football’s Faithful Fans, is about sport and human experience – a collection edited by Iain Whyte which has already raised over £4,500 for projects in Africa through the Homeless World Cup.

Our third title, Transfiguring the Everyday: The Musical Vision of Michael Tippett, is a book by Simon Barrow about composer Michael Tippett, and the connections his music makes to a world in upheaval – due to be published in 2023.

With more possibilities already in the publishing pipeline, Siglum is open to proposals from new and established writers alike.
