Against the Grain Poetry Press

Against the Grain logoAgainst the Grain Poetry Press is a new, innovative small independent poetry publisher dedicated to publishing challenging, well-crafted poetry.

Our aim is to produce beautiful works of art, with high production values and an edgy appeal, that are both provocative and moving.

We want our poets to be seen and heard, print starkly designed high-quality pamphlets and run launch events and signings.

The beat of our drum is our own and we strive to select strong, fresh, diverse voices.

We are very pleased to announce our commissioned poet, Anna Kisby, whose collection will launch the press.

We have also been reading all the fabulous submissions for next year and will be announcing the results soon.
