Red Press: What's in a name?

Red: the colour of magnanimity; fortitude; fortune.

Of revolution, of anarchy.
Of passion, anger, and love. Of courage, and of change.
The colour red has a rich and resonant history in human culture.

Red Press is about ideas that change the world.


Who we are

Katherine E. Knotts

Katherine (MSc Economic History, London School of Economics) has put her pen to good use in the social justice space for over 15 years as a writer and editor for a range of NGOs, social businesses, and impact investors. She also coaches other writers in the social justice space who need thought-partnership throughout the book-writing process. Based in England, she is the co-author of The Business of Doing Good (2015), an unrepentant grammar pedant, and her favourite smell is that of new pencils.
