WE’RE ON A MISSION TO DRIVE THE FUTURE OF PUBLISHING

A WORD (OR TWO) ABOUT US

Storytelling binds us together and makes us who we are. Books have an impact on people’s lives that no other media has - many of us still remember the childhood stories and books that helped shape our view of the world (or made us want to be a cowboy, a veterinarian, or a princess!).

Today book publishing is going through the most transformative time in its history since the first printing press, and digital presents a huge opportunity for publishers to expand their reach. We believe that allying smart technology to great storytelling can bring huge change to the world.

That’s our mission: connecting publishers and readers all around the world through smart technology.

We are Vearsa – which means “verse” in Gaelic, referring to Ireland’s long history of storytelling. We feel honored to continue this tradition by helping publishers thrive in the digital age.
