Pindrop Press

Welcome to Pindrop Press. We are a small, independent poetry publisher based in France with our headquarters in Glasgow. The press was founded in 2010 by Jo Hemmant and handed over to Sharon Black, a Pindrop poet, in March 2016.

Our mission is to publish poetry that is exciting, juicy and innovative.

If you would like to purchase any of our books, please visit the Bookshop.


* We are delighted to announce 2 new poetry collections, just out (December 2017):

Pam Thompson’s second full collection Strange Fashion bursts with strangers and with intimates, with colour and with cool dispassion. Peter Sansom has described it as 'compelling reading', Tamar Yoseloff describes is as being composed of 'small epiphanies. Pam Thompson is a university lecturer based in Leicester and one of the organisers of Word!, a spoken-word, open-mic night at the city’s The Y Theatre. In March 2017 she won 3rd prize in the Poets and Players Poetry Competition.

Roselle Angwin's fourth solo collection A Trick of the Light is the culmination of 35 years worth of poems written on the tiny Hebridean island of Iona. Gathered together for the first time, these poems are testament to the potentially transformative nature of place and history, both personal and geographical; they are testament to our ‘covenant with wild’. A Westcountry poet, Roselle leads the 'Fire in the Head' creative and reflective writing programme, and a programme for the ecological imagination, 'The Wild Ways'.

Forthcoming in spring 2018, we have debut collections by this year's Bridport poetry prize winner Mary-Jane Holmes and Marie Naughton, a psychotherapist living in Manchester, coming up.
