W


hen Jessica Kingsley Publishers (JKP) was acquired by Hachette UK in late 2017, some feared the distinctive personality of a 30-year-old indie


would be lost. But two and a half years on, it has preserved its agility and sense of purpose while adding the powerful resources of its new owner to great effect. JKP’s original commitment to social change


and the fields of autism, social work and therapy remains undimmed. But it has added many new strings to its bow, including a timely move into support for professionals and parents around children’s mental health and wellbeing. Last year also saw it delve deep into its rich backlist to repurpose content, including e-book libraries and an audio programme; develop crea- tive marketing campaigns such as a virtual Yoga Summit; and experiment with graphic novels. With Hachette’s support, it has pushed beyond


23


its core professional markets into trade channels, and established partnerships with organisations including J K Rowling’s Lumos charity. All of this made 2019 JKP’s best ever year, with domestic, international and digital sales all rising. This is also a publisher that has been


championing diversity long before it became a mainstream concern. As well as publishing for parts of society who are otherwise poorly served for content, it ramped up the diversity of its kids' list, and established itself as a market leader in resources on transgender issues. Judges applauded JKP’s heartfelt support


of inclusion, and saw abundant evidence of innovation across the business. “It is mission- driven with a clear focus and excellent implementation, and is committed to inclusion and diversity.” Its days of independence may be over, but as it settles into its new home, it is clear that JKP won’t be standing still.
