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 2016.

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

* We are delighted to announce the publication of Marie Naughton's debut collection, A Life, Elsewhere. These poems put us inside the head of astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell Burnell whose discovery of radio pulsars in the 60s translated as a Nobel Prize in Physics for her male supervisor; of high-wire artist Philippe Petit as he takes his first step on a line between the Twin Towers; and a lad whose tragic end hinges on a split-second decision in his morning journey to work. Suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst nestles next to the sister who chooses to devote her life to the church and the nun who compares sex with condoms to playing a piano wearing boxing gloves. These are funny, tender, sometimes devastating stories from a shining new poetic voice. The launch night on 6 November 2018 was accompanied by these unbelievably tasty-looking cupcakes made by Marie herself:
