About

Against 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 and we 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.
