About

Relationships are a complex but an intrinsic part of the human experience. Relationships can bring us joy and grief. Relationships can be a source of empowerment, and of shame. They can make us stronger or they can break our heart.

Whether with friends, family, lovers or ourselves, our relationships make us who we are.

On Relationships is a collection of short stories, essays, poetry and art to explore the complexities of the different relationships we all have.

The contributors

We are very proud to announce another amazing line up of authors and artists for On Relationships.

Marian Brereton // Jen Calleja // Susannah Dickey // Lexi Earl // Melissa Gitari // Salma Haidrani // Maz Hedgehog // Mikael Johani // Anna Kahn // Isha Karki // Daisy Lafarge // Rebecca Liu // So Mayer // Zahrah Nesbitt-Ahmed // Vanessa Pelz-Sharpe // Alexandros Plasatis // Gratiagusti Chananya Rompas // Tori Truslow // Lauren Vevers // Kate Young 

When will it arrive?

We're currently working on a timescale that means you should get your books in September, before our official publication date in October. 

Who are you?

3 of Cups Press is a micropublisher dedicated to providing a platform for voices otherwise unheard in the mainstream. We have a vision for a more equal, more peaceful and more inclusive world, and aim to contribute towards this by championing voices and paying all contributors for their work.

Our first book, On Anxiety, was published in January 2018 after being Kickstarted in August 2017, where it reached 100% within 4 days. Our second book, On Bodies, published in October 2018.

Our board is made up of five dedicated people from across the publishing and arts world. We are currently all based around London. We have been featured in The Bookseller, BookBrunch and the Frankfurt Daily. 

Finances

The money we are asking for will primarily cover paying our contributors and ourselves. Your contributions also are an investment in the future of 3 of Cups Press and any funds beyond our goal will go towards our future projects. If we hit our stretch goal of £5k we will be able to reprint On Anxiety which has sold nearly 900 copies so far.

Risks and challenges

This is our third kickstarter and our third anthology. The first two anthologies have allowed us to make enough money to fund the printing of this one and have both sold extremely well. There is very little risk in this kickstarter since all we are asking for is the funds to pay our contributors and ourselves!

Really the only potential issue is a delay in publishing. We always update our backers of changes so we will let you know if anything goes awry. The book is about half way done as it stands, with some pieces already finished, but delays may occur due to change of circumstances for authors or staff.
