Wordville publishes books about the performing arts. Its imprint Salamander Street publishes plays and poetry.

Wordville is an award-winning communication agency, launched in 2007, with offices in London and Barcelona. In 2021, Wordville began an independent imprint to publish books about the performing arts. Wordville's first book Stirring Up Sheffield – An Insider's Account of the Battle to Build the Crucible Theatre won STR's 2022 Theatre Book Prize. Since then, the publisher has continued to champion books about theatre and music including The Strokes' music producer Gordon Raphael's The World is Going to Love This, Alan Strachan's biography Adventurer: Bernard Miles and the Mermaid Theatre and Crisis: The Theatre Responds by Carol Rocamora. In 2023, Wordville acquired Salamander Street, founded in Leith in 2019, an imprint that publishes plays and poetry.

Salamander Street publishes a range of plays including popular playwright Mark Wheeller, two recently discovered plays by Anthony Burgess and it has plays on the UK national GCSE curriculum and being studied at St Andrew's, UEA and Oxford universities.

Salamander Street plays have been produced recently at Park Theatre, Pleasance Theatre, Traverse Theatre, Theatre 503, Tanya Moiseiwitsch Playhouse (Sheffield Theatres), Birmingham Rep and others.

Wordville and Salamander Street together have published more than 120 non-fiction books, plays, poetry collections and educational resources.
