Epigram Books is an independent publisher based in Singapore. It is known for putting together well-designed and thought-provoking titles. It began as a division of the multiple award-winning communications design firm Epigram but registered as a separate entity in July 2011 to champion Singaporean literature.
In the years since, it has expanded its catalogue to also include stories from around Southeast Asia. Its repertoire of fiction and non-fiction titles range from novels to children’s books, graphic novels to cookbooks, and memoirs to short story collections. Its books have won awards in Singapore and globally.
In 2015, Epigram initiated the Epigram Books Fiction Prize, which offers S$25,000 and a publishing contract to one winning manuscript. It expanded the submissions to include writers from Southeast Asia in 2020.
