Curious Moss is a new micro publisher based in Lancashire, England. We specialise in small limited editions of handbound chapbooks, zines and prints, and pocket-sized workshops for writers, artists and anyone who'd like to give creative writing a go.


Most parts of the publishing process for Curious Moss are undertaken by writer and maker Claire Dean, with stories edited by Andy Darby. We're using environmentally friendly and ethically sourced materials wherever we can, and aiming to provide inclusive access to all our stories and pocket workshops. Please get in touch if you have any questions about the alternative formats we can provide.

As everything we sell is handmade there may be minor variations in colour or print, tiny smudges and the odd slightly wonky detail. We hope you'll see this as part of the charm of buying handmade rather than mass-produced works.


Curious Moss is very much a part-time, in the cracks of the day, kind of undertaking, and so we apologise that there may be a couple of days' delay in us responding to messages.


We aren't currently open to submissions, but we may open to them in future. To be kept up-to-date with our news, please subscribe to our TinyLetter here.

More stock will be available later in the year.

Thank you for visiting.
