About the publishing house

Magic Mongrel Publishers is an independent publishing house based in Kochi that is committed to publishing unconventional narratives in literary fiction. 

Founded in 2020 with a vision to bring out contemporary voices in Indian literature, we seek writing that explores craft and the nuances of the literary landscape.

We publish fiction and creative nonfiction that are unconventional and innovative in its form and expression. While we specialise in novellas and collections of short stories, we are also interested in literary works in the form of novels, plays, prose poetry, and memoirs.
