Ringwood Publishing is a small, independent publisher, based in Glasgow, dedicated to publishing quality works of Scottish fiction and non-fiction. Since its founding in 1997, Ringwood has published on topics as diverse as saving the planet; the Irish troubles; euthanasia; referendums; the role of women in medicine and much more.

Ringwood is proud that so many of its interns have gone on to successful careers in the industry.
