Launched in October 2016 and already the home of multiple number 1 Sunday Times bestsellers, Trapeze is a commercial fiction and non-fiction imprint with the mission to publish books that start conversations. Our publishing reflects the world around us, tapping into global themes and discussion points that readers want to talk about, and our authors have great personal stories that generate media coverage. We also spark conversations in the way that we publish, always looking beyond our traditional formats and routes to market, and exploring innovative ways to reach new readers. In short, we are small team who think big: in our ambitions for our authors, our publishing and what we can achieve as a united team.
