Founded in 2020 in London by Kat Storace and Jen Calleja, Praspar Press is a micro-publisher created to support contemporary Maltese literature written in English and English translation.

Our aim is to connect emerging and established Maltese writers from across the world with Anglophone readers through a bold list and by being advocates and mediators in the industry. We look forward to publishing writing that truly excites us.

The word 'praspar' in Maltese loosely translates as 'capers' or 'misdemeanours' – a popular genre of children's books in Maltese literature based around the antics of the title character.
