Against the Grain Poetry Press is an innovative small independent poetry publisher dedicated to publishing challenging, well-crafted poetry. We love writing that is moving and provocative from strong, fresh, diverse voices.
We produce beautiful, starkly-designed, high quality books and pamphlets with high production values and an edgy appeal.
Our submissions window for pamphlets is usually annual, selecting four of the best for publication. Our next submissions window will be in 2023.
Established in 2017 we work closely with our poets, launching their books at The Poetry Café, London or online during the pandemic.
We ran a poem competition in 2018 and 2019.
