About Us

Tramp Press was launched by Lisa Coen and Sarah Davis-Goff in 2014 to find, nurture and publish exceptional literary talent. In 2019 they were joined by Laura Waddell in the role of UK Publishing Director. Tramp is based in Ireland and Scotland, and publishes internationally.

Tramp Press authors have won Irish Book Awards (including two overall ‘Book of the Year’ awards in the last three years), the International DUBLIN Literary Award (formerly the IMPAC), the Goldsmiths Prize, the Rooney Prize, a Lannan Fellowship, the Davy Byrnes Award, the Hennessy New Irish Writing Award, the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize, and the Kate O’Brien Award. They have been nominated and shortlisted for many more, including the Booker Prize, the Costa, the Desmond Elliott Prize and the Guardian First Book Award.

People who love books will always want excellent writing. We want to help them get their hands on it.
