Pindrop Press

Welcome to Pindrop Press. We are an 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 in 2016.

Our mission is to publish poetry that is exciting, well-crafted and fresh.

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


* We are delighted to announce the publication of Nell Farrell's debut collection, Derrida's Monkey: a fluent and confident journey through the most unlikely yet engaging of characters. Here we meet reckless nuns, a made-up dead husband, mermaids with their own social worker, French soldiers learning English, Captain Scott at his birthday dinner, Mary Queen of Scots, a pet orangutan and the beleaguered princess from Hans Christian Anderson’s 'The Wild Swans'. Nell Farrell has already proved herself with three highly regarded pamphlets to her name. This collection seals her reputation as a poet who is going places.

* Derrida's Monkey will be launched on Saturday 2 February 2019, 7pm for a 7.30pm kick-off, at Nether Edge Bowling Club, 8 Nether Edge Road, Sheffield. The venue has a bar and there will be a support act of music and singing - everyone welcome! SOLD OUT

* Authors due for publication at the start of 2019 include Graham Fulton, Cherry Smyth and Anna Lewis. We are very excited to welcome those poets on board.

* New year reading? Check out our latest poetry titles, all available from the online Bookshop:
