Oxford Indie Book Fair Proudly present the FIFTH issue of its online magazine


We’re aiming to produce an edition quarterly. Inside, you can find short stories, poetry, articles, the latest book launches and more. We’ve now moved our magazine 100% online and in a mobile friendly format to enjoy whenever you get a quiet moment.

Around 50 independent authors,
artists and publishers

FREE talks and entertainment
all day long

We offer the opportunity for new and established talent to showcase their work taking at our event in Oxford 2021.

It seems to be increasingly difficult for all but the most ‘already-successful’ authors to be accepted by traditional publishers, and/or receive recognition and profile in our mainstream media. Indie book fairs are becoming established elsewhere and since Oxford is a major city of arts and letters and renowned for writing and publishing it is not before time that the ever-growing Indie sector is to have its voice.

  • Free Admission to the general public.
  • A programme of performances will take place during the whole day, concurrent with the exhibit and sale of published work

COVID COMPLIANCE: We have asked all our exhibitors to take a lateral flow test before the fair opens. We ask visitors to use the sanitiser when you enter and handle browsing copies so that any purchases will be untouched. Should any hall reach capacity we reserve the right to ask visitors to move on, or return later. We welcome the use of masks where possible to help protect the public and our exhibitors. Thank you.

The organisers intend this first Oxford Indie Book Fair will be the beginning of an ambitious programme of events to celebrate the Independent sector, encompassing authors, publishers, e-publishers, agencies, printers, poets, illustrators, designers and writers’ groups. A follow-up event for April 2022 is also being planned.
