Little Island, an independent publisher of children’s literature, shares about creating and distributing products to young readers.
Staying afloat as a small independent publisher is not an easy task. Publishers have to compete against a deluge of new titles, and they are pitted against incumbents with established brands and massive resources.
In the midst of such rigorous competition, Little Island Books has achieved phenomenal success across the United Kingdom and in Ireland.
In order to learn more about their journey, Media Context speaks to founder Siobhán Parkinson, a well-known children’s author and the inaugural children’s laureate in Ireland.
We also speak to editor and production manager Matthew Parkinson-Bennett, an experienced editor who has worked with several established publishing companies, including Oxford University Press.
