Critical Publishing helps people in vocational professions including education, policing, health and social work become the best students and professionals they can be.
After working in publishing for many years, Di Page and Julia Morris founded Critical Publishing in 2012. Since then the business has gone from strength to strength, including winning the IPG Nick Robinson Newcomer Award in 2014 and being Highly Commended in the British Book Awards 2022.
We produce print and digital learning resources for a range of subject areas that we believe offer a truly critical approach (in all the best senses) that helps our readers think and encourages them to analyse, evaluate, question and challenge. So our community of readers achieve better skills, increased awareness and greater success in their chosen professional paths. We’ve now published over 200 titles with more added every month ...
We are committed to publishing in vocational areas to support the key professions which hold our society together. Education, social work, the NHS, policing – these are all high-stress professions subject to political whims and frequent changes in policy and legislation, thus requiring up to date and informed publications. Our titles support people throughout their career journey from trainee / undergraduate through to leadership positions. Many of our publications also have a particular focus on supporting mental health.
We also take pride in the relationships we develop with our authors and customers. We are always available, respond rapidly, make quick decisions, and offer a high level of interaction whether that is supporting an author from proposal stage through to finished books or fulfilling orders.
We are always pleased to hear from you. You can contact us by email or post at the address below:
