New Independent Publisher to launch this autumn

A new independent publisher will launch this autumn, with a list covering fiction, graphic fiction and narrative non-fiction including topics from current affairs to psychology and history.

Cutting Edge Press is backed by businessman Martin Hay, who is its joint c.e.o. and finance director. Bafta-nominated filmmaker and author David Cohen will also be joint chief executive. Verso author Reuben Cohen, who has previously worked at Sheil Land, MGA and Psychology News Press, is editorial director.

Turnaround will handle Cutting Edge's trade sales and distribution.
