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.
